It is election time and every election is important but this election brings back memories of when George Wallace, Governor of Alabama, was running for president. Donald Trump has tapped into the bigotry vein of society and is riding it for all it is worth and to me his election is about racism, sexism, inequality, and discrimination against LGBT, the disabled, Muslims, and Mexican immigrants. So it will behoove members of all the groups mentioned to vote in June and especially in November. In order to help yourself in other ways, especially in California, I am offering you my selections for June in the U. S. Senate, State Senate, State Assembly, and County Supervisor races. In the coming weeks I will include more of my thoughts on the local elections, including some key mayoral races in the region.
These individuals have a proven track record of serving and standing up for our community. Their opponents are saying things they will do while spreading misinformation of what these people are doing. All of the individuals I am offering on my voters guide have documented records you can check out for yourself. Plus all have a long history of being involved with all different groups of people of our communities. You can tell a lot about the candidate’s involvement in their community by who is on their campaign material and who officially endorses them. For example, Kamala Harris, Pete Aguilar, Norma Torres, Mark Takano Richard Roth, Cheryl Brown and Jose Medina are supported and endorsed by the Democratic Party while others claim to be, but are not.
I know you have a lot of things to do in June with school getting out, graduations, weddings, vacations and all that comes with those lazy days of summer, but I urge you to put voting at the very top of your list.
Kamala Harris, U.S. Senator
San Bernardino County
Pete Aguilar, 35th District U.S. Representative
Norma Torres, 35th District U. S. Representative
Cheryl Brown, 47th Assembly District
