I know it can be hard to get out and vote on local elections--either they seem insignificant, or you're pretty convinced electoral politics will never bring real social change, let alone justice. I hear you.
The thing is, tomorrow (June 3) in California, there's a deceptive initiative on the ballot that will signal the end of rent control in the entire state and severely undermine the government's ability to meet public environmental needs on (currently) private property. If you believe individual property rights should supersede every other consideration -- other people's stable, affordable housing; an entire neighborhood's access to, say, clean water -- please go ahead and stay home tomorrow. For the rest of you: PLEASE VOTE NO ON PROP 98.
