Jamiel's Law Lives On...
Below you will find numbers to call some of the Politicians that have the power to put Jamiel's Law on this Special Election. If you have questions regarding this Special Election call the Los Angeles County Registrar @ 562.466.1310.
In order to get Jamiel's Law on an election anytime soon, we must move pass the City of Los Angeles for now! The City is not interested in Jamiel's Law. This City needs reform and reform takes time.
We believe the City Elections should have counted the petitions in our presence and they should never have stored the Petitions in a warehouse basement where they were not safe, not secure and not protected!!
In the future, at least two proponents should be allowed to observe the counting process from beginning to end. All Proponents would be required to turn their Petitions in during morning hours so they could watch the process. Even if it takes more then one day, it should be done during working hours.
There should be transparency with the whole election process. This needs to be address in the near future. One thing for sure, the way the City of Los Angeles handled this was criminal!
But for now, please join us in calling the Board of Supervisors this week and asking if they would put Jamiel's Law on this Special Election for March 24, 2009 or on the November, 2009 LA County Election. Let's see if they are willing to openly discuss Jamiel's Law with the Public.
The Governor's Office scheduled the Special Election for Ex-Senator and now Supervisor, Mark Ridley-Thomas' seat for the 26th District, on March 24, 2009. The Mayoral election is March 3, 2009 and now the Special Election is March 24, 2009.
The Board of Supervisors have the power to put Jamiel's Law on this Special Election for March 24, 2009. They also have the power to put Jamiel's Law on the November, 2009, Los Angeles County Election. If they put Jamiel's Law on the ballot, we wouldn't need to gather 275,000 signatures for the LA County November, 2009 election.
If the Supervisors refuse to put Jamiel's Law on the election for November, 2009, we will raise money before we start getting signatures and we'll learn from all the experience we gained.
All we need is three of the five Supervisors to sponsor Jamiel's Law or vote to put Jamiel's Law on the ballot for March 24, 2009 or for November, 2009.
The City Council and the Mayor can also put Jamiel's Law on the ballot. They have until January 14, 2009 to put it on the March 3, 2009 election. It's not likely they'll do anything.
Let's not forget Arnold; he has the power to put Jamiel's Law on this Special March 24, 2009 Election also.
Supervisor, Mark Ridley-Thomas
Supervisor, Zev Yaroslavsky
Supervisor, Don Knabe - Chairman of the Board
You can also email Supervisor Knabe @ www.Knabe.com. On his website he says that he will respond to emails within 2 days and he wants to hear your questions.
Supervisor Michael Antonovich
Supervisor Antonovich informs the Community on how much illegal immigration is costing this City.
Please take the time to call the Supervisors this week. It will help keep Jamiel's Law alive!
Whatever happens, we will get Jamiel's Law on the November, 2009 election or the next state election. We also have a chance to get it on the March 24, 2009 election. We're learning from every obstacle! Our goal is to make something good come from this senseless murder of Jas.
Thank you and know for sure, we will NEVER give up!
