Are You Trying To Figure Out Who To Vote For In Down-Ballot Races? This Is For Angelenos

OK, local elections in L.A. County. These are the candidates I voted for, not including federal races:

  • Mayor- Kevin De Leon (worst candidate is Rick Caruso, a billionaire oligarch and manipulative anti-Choice Trumpist)

  • City Attorney- Faisal Gill

  • Controller- Paul Koretz

  • Unified School District Board member, District 2- Rocio Rivas

  • 52nd Assembly District- Mia Livas Porter

  • 26th state Senate District- wrote in Roland Charest

  • County Sheriff- Eric Strong (truly horrible: incumbent Alex Villanueva, LAX Police Chief Cecil Rhambo, Long Beach Police Chief Robert Luna)

  • Assessor- Jeffrey Prang

Superior Court Judges:

  • Office 3- Tim Reuben

  • Office 60- Anna Slotky Reitano

  • Office 67- Elizabeth Lashley-Haynes

  • Office 70- Holly Hancock

  • Office 90- Kevin McGurk

  • Office 116- Lloyd Handler

  • Office 118- Caroliyn "Jiyoung" Park

  • Governor- Luis Javier Rodriguez

  • Lt. Governor- Mohammad Arif

  • Secretary of State- Gary Blenner

  • Controller- Ron Galperin

  • Treasurer- Maghann Adams

  • Attorney General- David Kapelovitz

  • State Board of Equalization (district 3)- Tony Vazquez

  • Superintendent of Public Instruction- Tony Thurmond

I'll get to federal races soon, although the most important ones are here. Meanwhile, please read Adam's thread on the importance of the mayoral race and why you should work hard to persuade all your friends to vote against Caruso.
