Are you feeling tired of elections? Well, don’t turn off your bullshit radar just yet!! For the next couple of months, some of us are gonna be seeing more glossy mailers and answering annoying calls telling you to vote for people you ain’t neva heard of! This coming June, voters in Northeast LA will be deciding on a new a U.S. Congressman. If Jimmy Gomez wins that race, his Assembly seat will be up for grabs. How many progressive Latinas do you think are gonna compete against one another for that one?
More Latinos are running for this Congressional seat than attended Rubi’s Quinceañera. You’d think they were giving away free tamales in the House Of Representatives the way that so many of my gentes jumped in this race. A point on this crowded congressional competition: saying you will stand up to Donald Trump is easy! Calling out his cadre of racist buffoons is a nobrainer. Shit, Fox News and the Koch brothers are standing up to that mamon!
On March 7 get out and vote. Don’t make excuses about you being too busy or feeling like your vote doesn’t matter. Don’t be a pendeja or pendejo… that’s pendejx for people in Boyle Heights. You’re entitled to a 2-hour lunch break. That’s 30 extra minutes than what you already take- no te ahagas. So, go vote, take advantage of your 2-hour break, then walk proudly back into your job- like the descarados that you are, knowing that your “I voted” sticker will give you a pass.
You already know there are too many damn initiatives on the ballot and you’re too damn busy to learn about them all. #HoodDigest got you! So, grab a lapiz, cafe, pan dulce, and brace yourself!
Está cansada de tantas elecciones? Por favor no apague su radar de promesas falsas todavía!! El próximo par de meses algunos de nosotros vamos a recibir más folletos brillosos y llamadas pidiéndonos que votemos por candidatos que sepa la papa quién serán!
