How Do You Know Who to Vote For?

dont-voteDon’t Vote? — Don’t Complain! We’ve all heard this sentiment — some of us have used it ourselves. I was going to write a story about the upcoming May 19 election and how important it is that we get out there and yada yada yada. . . .

My plan started falling apart when I went to the Los Angeles County Registrar/Recorder site to download the election media kit. It took some time to download the package but when it was finally on my computer, I opened it to find that the kit contained information on the November 2008 election.

I found endorsements on the Los Angeles County Democratic Party website for local candidates and the iniatives. There also recommendations for the initiatives on the California Democratic Party’s website and at the Courage Campaign.

Then, a Facebook friend emailed me saying that he would be voting for Judy Chu for the 32nd CD — the seat vacated by Hilda Solis who was recently confirmed as Obama’s Secretary of Labor.

That’s when I decided that I’d ask you.

Who is your candidate? Which initiatives do you feel strongly about?

We can all find out who the Party endorses. How about letting everyone know who you endorse.

Below is a list of recommendations. The LA Progressive is getting between 35,000 – 50,000 pageviews a month. We give you the opportunity to let others know why they should vote for your candidate!
