Wait we’re voting again? YES.

CITIZENS OF LOS ANGELES hear ye hear ye

It’s become somewhat of a tradition for me to do a Los Angeles voting guide in order to support people who want to vote but are busy, and to just share info I found.

I ALSO write it to get more residents of Los Angeles to face the city’s needs and respond to them. I get that sharing news on Facebook is dramatic and exciting and you feel like you’re part of it, but honestly – are you helping? Sure you’re spreading the word, but then what? Awareness is not prevention.

Care for the city you live in by treating it as you would your hometown. Sure your grandma doesn’t live here but my abuelita does, and my family goes to school here. An election for School Board Members is the opposite of glamorous yes, but they are important people in the community you live in. Think about your neighbors’ kids, the son of the manager of your fav Thai place or that school you eat brunch across the street from- think about Africa, the mentally ill homeless man who was killed yesterday by LAPD.

 “Over the last decade, voter participation in city elections has ranged from 10% to 34%. It’s bad for democracy — and it empowers special interest groups — when so few Angelenos are making the decisions for everyone” – Los Angeles Times’ Editorial Board

Please remember these are my humble opinions (which I found out just now perfectly match LA Times – see below) and you should research and come to your own conclusions.
