GOOD Voter Guide to the May 21st Los Angeles Election
We’ve tried to provide as much info as we could about how these folks stand on issues like jobs, the environment, education, health care, civil rights—the stuff you care about. You can decide from there.
Some disclaimers: This guide is a volunteer operation, not produced by GOOD. Due to research fatigue, lame candidate websites and Murphy’s Law, you may spot a mistake or two. Some candidates simply don’t provide a lot of info, and our researcher styles varied, so some profiles may differ or seem a bit incomplete. We didn’t get to all the candidates, but we tried to cover the ones who seemed most relevant to our generation. We used public sources, including government and candidate websites, so the guide’s accuracy is contingent on those sources at the time of publication (May 2013).
If you have more info or an opinion to share, leave a comment. This is your election as much as it is ours. Remember, what happens in our backyard matters, and this election has some high stakes, so please pass this guide along. We hope you find it informative and helpful and that it will occasionally make you chuckle.
