CA Judicial Candidates and More!

The Future of California

Out of the mouths of babes...righteous truths!

Don't you hate getting to that quite large part of the ballot for judicial candidates and having NO IDEA who to vote for? Judges are non-partisan (supposedly) but we all know that an anti-abortion, or pro-death-penalty, judge can wreak havoc upon our laws and defendants. Here is a helpful website to look up judges on. It's our duty to take a little extra time to research these people who will be deciding so much of our legal fate:
CA Smart Voter
and California Courts

Note: I'll soon be finished with my own absentee ballot and will publish Who and What I voted for. It may help you decide what to do on your own ballot.

EVENT ANNOUNCEMENT (This sounds fascinating):

Thursday, Oct 26, Rockridge Institute Forum
"What Are Americans Voting For?"
Wheeler Auditorium, UC Berkeley,
7:30 p.m. Free and open to the public.

* George Lakoff, Senior Fellow of the Institute and UC Berkeley Professor of Linguistics

* Robert Reich, UC Berkeley Professor of Public Policy

* Joan Blades, cofounder of MoveOn.org and Momsrising

* Markos Moulitsas, founder of Daily Kos

Bruce Cain, Director of UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies, Moderator


Volunteer to help Jerry McNerney kick Abramoff-tainted, enviro-destroying, Bush-kowtowing Richard Pombo out of California's 11th District. There's an amazing variety of Phone Banks & Precinct Walks between now and the election. You don't have to be in the 11th district to help elect a wind-power engineer to Congress in place of a politician bought by the oil lobby.
