The political season is certainly among us, every time you turn on the television there is yet another political ad. I feel that voting is not only a right but our duty, so I don't mind politics. But I am growing very tired of all these ads, there is only so much mud slinging one can take. With only a little over a week and a half left, you can bet the heat will only be turned up.
This Friday President Obama will be in Los Angeles to do just that, turn up the heat for the Democratic party. President Obama will be at USC’s Alumni Park on Friday, October 22nd at 10:00am for a rally named "Moving America Forward", this event is open to the public, but you are encouraged to RSVP (my.barackobama.com.). This is the fifth of a series of rallies designed to gain momentum for the upcoming election on November 2nd and to specifically the raise the youth vote. I'm sure this will be a wonderful event to attend, I think hearing our President speak is an amazing opportunity. I hope as many of you as possible can attend.
Going right along with the political season, DLANC will hold a special election on Thursday, October 21st for their three open seats. Area stakeholders will choose a representative for the positions of Social Service Provider, Alameda East Resident and Alameda East Business on the all-volunteer panel.
