Below are my recommendations for the June 7, 2022, California Primary Election.
As a Black woman who is a registered Democrat, and someone who is politically active and conscious, I don’t always agree with my political party’s recommendations. I look at what’s best for Black people, other People of Color (all colors), poor people (of all colors), and what just makes common sense.
I don’t accept any money for endorsements for my voter guide. Not one penny. I do this as a service to my community and because I respect the trust that my community has in my opinion.
Los Angeles County will mail all registered voters a Vote-by-Mail ballot to ensure voters have a safe and accessible voting option during COVID-19. In-person voting will also be available at Vote Centers. Remember that with the new Vote Centers, you can vote ANYWHERE in L.A. County–not just near your home.
You can register to vote and vote if you are:
- In county jail serving a misdemeanor sentence (a misdemeanor never affects your right to vote)
- In jail because jail time is a condition of probation (misdemeanor or felony)
- In jail serving a felony jail sentence
- In jail awaiting trial
- On parole
- On probation
- On mandatory supervision
- On post-release community supervision
- On federal supervised release
- A person with a juvenile wardship adjudication
I do not endorse or support candidates who took Ed Buck’s money and didn’t return it to the fund set up to help his victims. I don’t care who they are.
Because I am deeply concerned about the direction of our criminal justice system and the treatment of crime victims, my recommendations for judges are a mixture of Deputy District Attorneys and Deputy Public Defenders.
Finally, candidates with an asterisk by their name indicate that I either worked as a consultant on their campaign, donated to their campaign or both. As you know, I put my skills, energy and money where my values are.
