    ... and I haven't seen much from Brown either. I looked into volunteering with the campaign, but apparently Brown hasn't established a regional campaign office yet (that I'm aware of). I've thus decided to wait and volunteer with the local Democratic club coalition, which should be setting up shop in about a month. Considering Whitman's huge money advantage, I would have hoped the Brown campaign would be focusing on organizing a good ground game. But I'm not seeing it, so far.

      I live in Topanga Canyon and have seen one Brown for Governor sign on the main road. Wonder where it came from?

      We cannot let Whitman gain any further traction. She would be a disaster for an already disastrous state government.

      What we need is a constitutional convention to replace this ludicrous excuse for a state legislature. (And to replace as many republicans as we can.)

        ...is a constitutional convention to make our constitution a roadmap for government, rather than toilet paper for special interests, no matter what side of the political spectrum those interests come from.  A huge part of our budget mess come from constitutional requirements on how much the state must spend where, and the rest comes from how hard it is to raise any tax or anyone, no matter how necessary.

        And it should be much, much, much harder to amend.

        And it should get rid of term limits in the legislature, which have made lobbyists the only one with institutional knowledge.

    •  Brown's off the air now, as far as I can tell (1+ / 0-)

      The nurse's union is running pro-Brown radio ads, but that's it.
