Simply vote 'no' on Measure G, leave ballot blank

Monterey Herald, Aug. 19, 2009

I guess it's the law, but having town council elections on the same ballot as the Carmel Valley incorporation question certainly seems like putting the cart before the horse. It would have made more sense for the Board of Supervisors to have Measure G, which is incorporation, and
Measure H, which is district or at-large representation, stand on their own in November. Then should Measure G pass, have the new municipality pay for a special election early next year to choose a town council.

Predictably, the town council election is becoming a distraction, with the potential to confuse many voters. Also, if district representation is chosen, would the elected council member's addresses be in compliance? My solution? I will simply vote "no" on Measure G, and leave the rest of the ballot blank.
