. . besides the fact that you’re going to be expected to vote for LACCD trustees you’ve probably never heard of unless you’ve visited SmartVoter.org. Click on smartvoter.org/2015/03/03/ca/la/school.html and page down past the LAUSD candidates. The good news here is that LACCD has decided not to have a May runoff. The person with the most votes for each seat will be declared the winner.
The City of Los Angeles has two very provocative ballot measures: Charter Amendments 1 & 2, proposing to consolidate their strange March and May election cycle with the county, state, and national elections in June and November of even-numbered years! If they can do that, maybe we in Culver City can vote for our City Council and School Board on the same day, whether in April of the even-numbered years, November of the odd-numbered years, or some other date. I think it will be very informative to consider the pros and cons of L.A. charter amendments in the light of Culver City issues (low turnout, expense, etc.).
L.A.’s March 3 ballot measures will be discussed at League of Women Voters’ Culver City Unit meeting on Tuesday, January 20. Time and place: 11:00 a.m. at the Culver City Senior Center (NW corner of Culver & Overland). Park free across the street at Vets. More info: [email protected] or 310/397-4970.
BTW, neither C.A. 1 or C.A. 2 will pass unless they both pass, and so LWV’s ‘Pros & Cons’ cover both in one document (see the right-hand column at smartvoter.org/2015/03/03/ca/la/meas/1/ and http://smartvoter.org/2015/03/03/ca/la/meas/2/
