By: Ben Allen, Candidate for California State Senate District 26
On November 4th, voters will head to the polls and face critical choices that impact both the future of our State and our community here in Santa Monica.
Local voters will determine who will fill the shoes of long-time political titans L.A. County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky and U.S. Congressman Henry Waxman, and who will take over the scandal-ridden positions of L.A. County Assessor and Sheriff. A major water bond proposal is also on the ballot, as well as one to improve the funding for parks in L.A. County. Here in Santa Monica, voters will make decisions about the future of our airport, taxes on property sales and support for affordable housing.
Our voters will also face a big decision over who will represent our community in the State Senate – and they will see my name as a choice.
