    I agree with the District 1 recommendation in LAUSD board race. What I cannot believe is the endorsements of the two other sitting board members you endorsed. Did you not see the protests by UTLA, they are no friends of teachers, parents or students. For you to endorse them is a slap in our face.

    Is Brad Smith even still in this race? I got an email from him this morning saying he'd withdrawn from the CD12 race.

    Yeah, just checked Brad's website and the front page is his withdrawal.

    An overwhelming majority (approx 111 out of 136), with plenty of teacher support, voted for Tamar Galatzan. UTLA works well with her and is actually not taking sides in that race.

    No consensus in Council District 8? What are you guys politically tone deaf. Parks has been horrible for the district, especially working people.

    Thank God Forescee Hogan-Rowles is running against him.

    I cannot believe our party endorse someone like Efren Martinez running for Huntington Park City Council. Before endorsing someone, please be sure to know the intents of those candidates. Believe me, Mr. Martinez is not for the community is for himself.
