As many of you know, Tuesday March 8th is election day for the 8th district, which includes the communities of Baldwin Hills, Crenshaw, Leimert Park, West Adams, Jefferson Park, Chesterfield Square and other areas of South Los Angeles.
In addition to several important ballot measures on the budget, there is our local council race. I don't believe in endorsements - it's your responsibility to make up your own mind.
Here are some useful stories you should read and they may help you decide who deserves your vote. Whatever you decide, we need to get more people to the polls and have our voices heard.
