VOTE TOMORROW! Special Interests Win When Voters Stay Home & Don't Vote

Photo: Diane Edwardson, April 29, 2013.  A long City election season left voters feeling like a flat rat on Corralitas Drive.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)

Don't let the special interests win.  Special interests win by spending exorbitant amounts of money on negative campaigns so people get fed up & don't bother voting.  For months, Our neighborhood has been under siege by a barrage of campaign mail flooding our mailboxes in what seems like a never-ending torrent of crap, endless phone calls & precinct walkers (yes, I've been one of them). 

In City Council District 13 (CD13), we've gone from 12 City Council candidates to 2.  Pick one.

Follow the money: City Ethics Dept website.  Pay attention to not just the amount of money City Council candidates for CD13 raised, but the "independent expenditures," both for & against candidates.  The "against" candidate expenditures are a sneaky way of hiding even more money spent to benefit the candidate they're actually supporting.   

If you live on any of the immediately adjacent streets to the Red Car Property we talk about regularly (Corralitas Drive, Riverside Place, Riverside Terrace, India, Adelbert, Silver Lake Ave, Lake View Ave, Silver Ridge Ave) you vote at  Allesandro Elementary School Auditorium.

Not sure where your polling place is: LA County Registrar of Voters
