This Thursday candidate for Congress Dr. Lee Rogers (D) and candidate for State Assembly Edward Headington (D) will be having an event at Simi Sam's from 6-7 PM. After that there is an event for school board candidates Dan White. Rob Collins, and Debbie Sandland.
Simi Valley School Board Member Arleigh Kidd is helping to organize the event. I plan on going. What questions do you think I should ask the candidates?
The Los Angeles Times has released an internal document of the items being negotiated between Republicans and Democrats in Sacramento.
Here is the section on education:
Which Republicans locally are in negotiations?
State Assembly Member Jeff Gorell has been deployed to war and State Senator Tony Strickland has clearly stated he isn't interested in any negotiations that put the tax extensions on the ballot. I received a robocall asking me to contact State Assembly Member Cameron Smyth recently.
This is an impressive list of reforms. I don't accept the argument that some Republicans, like George Runner, are promoting that their party shouldn't be open to negotiations. The reform to teacher tenure alone would be huge.
I'm not the most partisan blogger. I want Republicans to negotiate for some of the items on the list including limiting pension spiking and reforming education. What good ideas did you find in the document?

Join Assembly Member Smyth as he hosts a child safety event at Simi Valley Town Center. Come by and find out what Assembly Member Smyth is doing to keep you and your children safe. While you're there, you can also pick up a child safety kit, and have your children fingerprinted.
I changed Assemblyman to Assembly Member. Have you ever noticed the different nomenclature choices between Democrats and Republicans? Assembly Member makes flows better if you ask me.
Just by looking at the background can you identify where in Simi Valley this photo was taken?
After each political season there is always a few signs that stay up for months that are overlooked by the campaigns when they are cleaning up. This time all of the campaigns did a pretty good job of picking up their signs in Simi Valley. But what about in your neighborhood?
This sign is in Simi Valley. If Carole Lutness gives me permission I will go take it down myself.
If you see any signs that remain up, email me and I will post them.
Carole Lutness, past state assembly candidate and current organizer for Democrats in the 38th district, sent out an email encouraging Democrats to get involved and represent their district at the Democratic Party's state convention.
