Nov. 4th 2008 is the most important election in history, but not only for the potential of electing Obama as president, but also for those who has always supported the community.

CONGRESS (The incumbents)

LAURA RICHARDSON (D-37th) – is the freshman Congresswoman who ascended to Washington in a landslide victory over her nearest rival by a two-to-one margin.  That gave her the mandate to continue representing her district with the same enthusiasm, as they had been accustomed to. 

MAXINE WATERS (D- 35th) – is recognized as one of the most powerful representatives in Congress and is a fighter for her constituents.  She goes where the action is and never retreats from a challenge in defending those whom she represents.

DIANE WATSON (D-33rd) – brings an array of experience and a commitment to excellence in managing the affairs of her constituents.  Her background as an educator and a former ambassador adds to resume as a "states-woman." 

 ASSEMBLY (The incumbents)

KAREN BASS (A-47th) – as the nation's first African American Speaker of the Assembly, she has embarked on a path of service not only to her 47th district constituents, but also to the people of the State of California.  One of her strengths is her availability and accessibility to those whom she represents.

MIKE DAVIS (A-48th) – after winning a hard-fought race, he has served the community in an exemplary manner in his first term and his constituents will allow him to represent them in the assembly for a second term.

CURREN PRICE (A-51st) – as former city councilman, he used his ascension to the assembly to continue the work he was doing on a much larger scale.  There is no doubt that his constituents will vote to send him back to Sacramento to continue serving them.   


RODERICK WRIGHT (STATE SENATE) – as a former legislator, his track record of has served him well; six mayors of the 25th district has endorsed him to be the next state senator because he has the experience to fight for the communities and has a history of working together.

ISADORE HALL (ASSEMBLY) – he has an impressive resume of service to the community as a city councilman and a reserved deputy sheriff.  He has worked to empower local business in his district and has brought jobs to an area of high employment. The 52nd assembly district will be the beneficiary of his continued service to the community.

BERNARD PARKS (COUNTY SUPERVISOR) – has been endorsed by the incumbent, Supervisor Yvonne B. Burke, Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Earvin "Magic" Johnson and many elected officials, community leaders.  As former Chief of Police for the Los Angeles Police Department, he has the administrative skills combined with his legislative experience as a city councilman to continue the work of the incumbent in the 2nd supervisorial district.
