Get Out and Vote on June 5, 2018!


OAKLAND, CA [May 31, 2018]  Although many people may feel disenfranchised or unmotivated about the mid-term elections, it is very import to exercise your civic duty by voting on Tuesday, June 5, 2018.  If you do not know if you are registered or where your polling place is, please visit California Secretary of State, Alex Padilla’s, website at

One of the down sides on knowing a lot of people is that sometimes your friends and colleagues run against each other for the same office.  I am glad that my network is willing to roll up its sleeves to get involved in their communities, however, it makes it challenging for me to endorse them since most of them do not live in a region where I can vote for them.  Nonetheless, I make it a point to illuminate whom I know that is running for office and ask for the following:

1.)  That you review their campaign websites;
2.)  Consider writing a check/donate to their campaigns; and
3.). Consider voting for them.

The best way to make a decision is to inform yourself on the candidate, their platform, and their stance on the issues that most resonate with you, your family, and your community’s needs.  Good luck!
