Measure M In the City of Sacramento, Measure M would create a charter commission to study the cities' charter and make recommendations for improvements and reforms. A yes vote establishes the commission and the ballot will include 54 different candidates for 15 volunteer spots. A no vote means no commission is started and the 15 spots are moot. We'll hear arguments for and against in a report by Capital Public Radio's Bob Moffitt. We'll also talk about it with Jared Goyette, Editor-in-Chief of the Sacramento Press.
