We only have one more week before Election Day is upon us and we had rain this week. It is getting cooler and you know how we are when it rains and the weather changes. Please do not wait until November 2nd to cast your ballot and run up against bad weather.

I have decided to hold my nose and vote for some democrats even though they have ignored us when it comes to addressing the many problems facing our community. You might say why you would vote for them; well the republicans are even worse when it comes to addressing issues in the Black community. This is an issue we will have to come to grips with after the election if we want either party to take us seriously.

I have added Jerry Brown and Debra Bowen to the list in our statewide endorsements and Joe Baca to the congressional district to help protect those small gains of the last two years. In Baca’s case we will have to look for improvement or seek another candidate in two years. In the case of Brown we will seek to gain access with an agenda that will help reduce the high unemployment in our community while seeking better educational opportunities for our young people. We must also seek better business opportunities for young entrepreneurs to set up shop in our neighborhoods.

Having said that I offer this voting guide for your consideration from Black Voice News.

What did you base your decision on to select Bonnie Flickenger as the candidate for Moreno Valley City Council? There are two other candidates Gwendolyn Cross and Marcelo Co in district 4. There are also candidates in district 2 running for Moreno Valley City Council. I would like to know if you got input from someone who lives in Moreno Valley I know you don't like outsiders making decisions when it doesn't affect them. People who live in the City of Moreno Valley will be affected by the outcome of this city council election. I would appreciate a reply. Thank you

I disagree with you on Prop 19.

The next time your kid or cousin is arrested for pot you'll have only yourself to blame if you don't vote yes.

The NAACP just released a report that says from 2006 to 2008, California African-Americans and Latinos were up to 12 times more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession than whites. In Los Angeles County, for instance, where blacks account for only 10 percent of the population, they accounted for 30 percent of those arrested for pot possession.

Stand up and vote yes on 19. Legalize it, tax it and control it.
