Yes, another election in Los Angeles, and this time there’s a Prop 8 angle.
Next Tuesday, March 24th, is the special primary election for selecting the Democratic candidate in the coming race for CA State Senator from District 26, which covers a large area of central Los Angeles. Map here.
Curren Price is the only leading candidate who supports same-sex marriage, and who, as a State Assembly member representing Assembly District 51, co-authored a resolution to overturn Prop 8. Now, he’s running for State Senate and he needs your vote.
And surprise, hipsters and Hollywood liberal elite! Your neighbors in District 26 overwhelmingly voted YES ON PROP 8, which denied same-sex couples the right to marry.
Equality CA is operating phone banks at their Silver Lake office every day until next Tuesday in an effort to educate voters. Contact Conrado Terrazas, campaign organizer, at [email protected], 323-661-2071 ext. 206 for more information.
