Today there are mayoral races in most big cities and three governor’s races.

I voted for:
Angela Alioto for mayor
Terrence Hallinan for District Attorney
Michael Hennessey for Sheriff
Yes on all propositions except M. that makes being homeless a crime

For other races, I endorse:
Ronnie Musgrove for Governor of Mississippi and Barbara Blackmon for Lt. Gov.
Kathleen Blanco for Governor of Louisiana
Ben Chandler for Governor of Kentucky
John Street for Philadelphia mayor.


I know most of the people I want to win may lose this time around. The central part of the country is still under the W Bush spell and will give the bastard anything he wants.

Superfly, I think you'll be right about Richard, he's extended his polling lead, but its going to be much closer. After thinking real hard about my pick I decided that since I took myself out of the city limits when I moved two years ago, I'm not eligible to vote for mayor. D'OH!  Sad

I guess I have to hope the right man/woman wins.

I'll keep you posted.

That's good Dc10guy.

Even if W Bush wins Arizona, he could still lose the popular vote AGAIN.
Get as many voters out as possible.

Superfly, I know you said it in jest (or are you?), but I don't think restricting panhandling could be characterized as "makes being homeless a crime". Or is there more to it than that?

Regardless, glad to see everyone here vote...I'm on my way after work today to do my duty (although the measures I'm voting for are alot less interesting.)

Take it easy... Big grin

In the GOP primaries, will you support Ron Paul or George W Bush?

I like Ron Paul because at least he is a true conservative that opposed the Patriot Act.

Well prop M claims to go after 'aggressive panhandling'.
Yet the supports have raised/solicited thousands and thousands of dollars. I consider that aggressive panhandling too.  Smile

Wealthy businessman come here and complain about homelessness yet do nothing about it. Homelessness is a bi-product of capitalsm. If these rich bastards hate to have these homeless people visible, then tough!
I hate to see people homeless too but going after those begging for a quarter isn't going to solve the problem.

As someone who lives in the suburbs of Philadelphia and have been following the John Street/Sam Katz mayoral race I can say that Street will more than likely be re-elected. He is pretty popular with the people. However, I think that Sam Katz would be ideal for promoting business in Philadelphia and be instrumental in creating more jobs (something that John Street has not worked very hard to address). Street has veen more focused on cleaning up abandoned cars.

As a side note, I'd like to remind people of something: don't just vote the ticket! By voting the ticket you may be endorsing people whose policies you don't exactly agree with. Be a conscientous voter and endorse whom you KNOW will get the job done.

Edit-And to those who did vote today: Kudos for excercising your right to vote. Voting is something that is taken for granted by most people in this country yet those whom don't have the freedom to would beg to differ.

Very true.
The Democratic Party machine is behind Gavin Newsom (Newscum), I am not. I've met him and he is a nice guy and all but I think he would be bad for working class people in San Francisco. I can't believe that people who call themselves 'liberals' are endorseing this guy. Willie Brown, Diane Feinstein and even Nancy Pelosi is supporting this guy. He is just a puppet for the landlords and developers.
Gavin Newsom kicked out a 77 year old lady from one of his apartment buildings that he inherited just so he could raise the rent for some yuppie-dot comer to move in.

On a related note, which would you say OVERALL determines the outcome of a race?

I voted,

I voted for a Republican (Ted Narronzanick) for Freeholder

I Voted for a Green Party Canidate for State Senate from my District, the Republican and Democratic canidates were both embroiled in one scadal after another.

I voted Republican for Town Counsel/Mayor, the Democrats have been talking about open space while farm after farm turns into ugly huge Mcmansions.

The main reason I wanted to vote (I have voted every year since '95) is to approve a voter referendum to approve the increase in State Spending towards Open space, this is a huge issue here in New Jersey because New Jersey is/was the Garden State with beautiful farms and forests. However every year it's getting more and more crowded, over development has reached levels where NJ is starting to look like Long Island.

Unfortunatly B is why Gavin Newsome might win.

He is an attractive young guy. He is only 36 years old, tall (maybe 6'4"), well spoken, manicured, sharp dresser and in very charismatic.


This is they guy I don't like.

The lady I voted for is an older short lady that has a very nice rack! Big grin
Seriously I picked Angela Alioto because I like wear she stands on the issues.
She comes from a wealthy established family and her father was once mayor back in the 1960s. She has sort of rebelled against the rich and is taking on issues important to renters, homeless and has won some landmark cases as a Civil Rights attorney.

On the bright side, I know if he wins, he will run for statewide office (Senate and/or Governor).
He just might win too. You might be hearing more about this Gavin Newsome guy in the future.

Superfly, 84% reported and Graham is up 58% - 42%. Its over. He's been reelected. As for GOP primary, I'm still going with W at this point and time. As for Evan Bayh, I wouldn't worry about him. He's Indiana's golden boy. No way he'll lose. If he ran for prez (which I honestly think the Dems should REALLY consider him), he would have Indiana giving its votes to a Dem for the first time since LBJ. Evan would make for an interesting president.

Superfly,
Just to update you (don't know if you can actively follow this in CA) but the Street vs. Katz race is still very uncertain. 9:08PM and polls were supposed to be closed at 8 PM, however in some parts of North Philadelphia the lines are so long that they have to remain open. AP is reporting that Street is ahead right now by an EXTREMELY small amount.

I think that this will end up like 1999 when Katz went against Street. Didn't have a definite winner until 1:30 AM the day after elections.

Hey Superfly, don't you think its rather comical that the same 'rich bastard' that you described is from the same group of people that gives a higher percentage of their money to charitable causes? Isn't it funny that donations from the rich actually make up most of these charity's incomes? Don't blow smoke up our ass telling people that the rich don't care about others.

I say kick 'em off the streets. Geez, Superfly if you really cared about these people you wouldn't want them on the streets. They should be in shelters and rehabilitation clinics, not Fridgidaire boxes.

If your so rich, how come your parents didn't spend money for you to get a half way decent education?

Agreed. Are you willing to have your tax dollars go to this?
California used to have them years ago until this a$$hole governor named Ronald Reagan had them all shut down.

Since when did I state I was "rich?" First of all, thats none of your business and particulary offensive. Secondly, I went to a private high school and I'm saving my parents some money by going to a state school for my first two years of college.

Hell no. Most shelters are privately owned and operated through charitible contributions.
