Bloggin Happy Hour Musings on Election Eve for June, 2012

Great Blogging Happy Hour Musings on this eve before tomorrow's Primary Election. Partake with us as we lay out a political buffet of election-related topics that may find there way onto the breakfast dish next to someone's cup of decaff morning coffee---Scott Johnson
Ban the Political Carpetbag(ger)!
The democratic donkey exhausted after bearing Jimmy "PACman" Gomez monetary carpetbag from Riverside.
This blogger is calling upon voters in the newly drawn 51st Assembly District to just say no to political carpetbag(gers) and vote for either Arturo Chavez or Luis Lopez in tomorrow's primary election. Its time to tell the political elites that we value our endemic community leaders and they should be given first consideration for local political offices. The continue sustainability and improvement of our neighborhoods is predicated on electing indigenous officials who have roots bonded by family, work and career that transcend the insiders political considerations.

** From the Glendale News Press mailbag on its "recent coverage" regarding comments and videos of 43rd Assembly District Candidate Greg Kirkorian at the recent Armenian Genocide Remembrance via Bill Graham of Burbank.
If the newspaper's objective was to further perpetuate the effort of Mike Gatto supporters, you are going to fail. Fomenting bigotry and hatred in our community is something local Republicans will speak out against at all times. It may be a campaign strategy for some Democrats, but it is repulsive to most of us, who live our lives here, whether we are Republicans, Democrats, or Independents.

** What happens when you get like-minded candidates for political office? Expect some nasty mail.
** A USC Poll gives Congressman Brad Sherman a lead over Congressman Howard Berman in the nationally-watched 30th Congressional Contest. The question here in this democratic redrawn district is whether one of the two republicans can gain the second spot in this political brawl
** Longtime Daily News Political Writer Rick Orlov gives us the rundown on the state election proceedings in the San Fernando Valley. Whether its the 38th, 39th, 43rd or 46th Assembly Districts, the states new open primary rules will be a financial bonanza for political consultants and a burden for your local postal carrier.
"Weekly of Record" Election Coverage  
** Blogger's note: LA Weekly of Record Editor Jill Stewart and her excellent corps of writers have once again outreported the "Old Gray Hag on Spring Street" in this election cycle. We highlight a good sample of their current elections musings---S.J.
** Beth Barrett reports from her former Valley turf on the 39th Assembly District Race between Raul Bocanegro and termed out CD 2/7 City Councilman Richard AlarCON.
** Hillel Aron gives us a triple-scoop of election musings with his coverage of the needless tax behind Prop 29. Then the former Neon Tommy staffer does what could be Congressman Howard Berman's last gasp in the 30th Congression Contest. Lastly, Aron gives us the background behind the Eirc Bauman vs.Gloria Romero inter-party skirmish in the 46th Assembly District Contest.
** By far the most exclusive political contest manana is the 50th Assembly District race among Assemblywoman Besty Butler and activist Torie Osborn. Patrick Range McDonald has an extensive missive on the quest of Butler and Osborn to represent Westside liberals in Sacramento. Plus how many assembly elections have baby bottles sent in mass to voters?
Lastly, Election Recommendations from Betty Pleasant
  These are The Soulvine’s recommendations for Tuesday’s Primary Election:

NO on Proposition 28 and NO on Proposition 29. FOR Sen. Dianne Feinstein. FOR Rep. Janice Hahn in the new 44th Congressional District. FOR Rep. Howard Berman in my new 30th Congressional District. FOR Shannon Knight, Superior Court Judge No. 65; FOR James D. Otto, Superior Court Judge No. 78, and FOR Danette Meyers for district attorney. I don’t care about the other races because they are either uncontested or we have empty suits trying to keep from being replaced by candidates wearing no suits at all. Pitiful. 

....... and pity the fools who do not turn out to vote tomorrow.

Your thoughts ..............
Scott Johnson in CD 14
