I voted today!
 
But unfortunately, because of my district, I didn’t get to vote for one of my favorite candidates for school board. However, if you live in District 3, you have the chance to vote for Christine Bernstein for LAPS School Board.
 
I first met Christine when we were both teachers at Pojoaque Schools. She is an innovative, committed and passionate high school teacher and I know she will bring just as much energy to the school board as she does to the classroom.

Mr. Kerr,

Perhaps I'm in the minority, I'm not sure and I've never seen a study to confirm. I was raised by a single mother who wasn't political at all.

With regards to the rest of your letter, I disagree.

The House (with a Democratic majority) has passed a great number of bills, including

Why do I belong to a political party?
 
We can pick a reason but most likely the reason is that the party we pick is the one our parents belong to. A political party usually represents the values of the home. Chances are that if grandpa and pop were Democrats, you are, too. There is not a lot of hard thinking involved in registering in a political party.
 
In the beginning of our nation, our first leader, George Washington was opposed to political parties because he felt that they would lead to non-productive political bickering and divert energy away
