Counting down to Nov. 2

We’re in the home stretch for elections, folks. A few quick items:

•The “Safe and Clean School Coalition,” which has circulated political fliers in Stockton in recent days, apparently is causing a stir in at least one other California town. The Morgan Hill Times has stories on the controversy here and here. A reader sent me a copy of one of the Morgan Hill fliers because of its apparent pro-public safety bent. Look at it here and here.

•Record colleague Christian Burkin has a rundown on the latest rift between City Hall and the fire union.

•In another sort of elections, today is the deadline for property owners to vote for or against a proposed $2.88-a-month stormwater fee, which, if passed, will be charged in addition to the existing $2.10-a-month fee. Ballots are due today by 4:30 p.m. Officials are estimating a roughly 10 percent return on the ballots (or close to 8,000 votes). The City Council had an interesting discussion on the city’s votes at a recent meeting. Officials expect to present the City Council with ballot results next month.

•So this isn’t related to Stockton elections, but worth nothing: The State Controller’s Office today posted city and county compensation data on its website today. You can wade through Stockton’s info here. A full report will be in tomorrow’s paper.
