Lee Davis for 6th District Council
By Lee DavisCandidate for Council Member; City of Long Beach; District 6
This information is provided by the candidate
I think it is important to list the Ethic Commission I want to implement for the city of Long Beach. This commission would oversee all city departments. The commission would report directly to the Long Beach City Councils and if necessary to the Los Angeles District Attorney. This would give the city a complete CHECK AND BALANCE for our City CharterI have been the Publisher and owner of the Wrigley Bulletin and News since 1989, I have never given an endorsement. Because I feel it is a choice of the people in Long Beach districts. When an individual runs for a national election, that is different
But local elections are where we really see democracry at its best. The people vote counts toward their choice. I have sponsors who have purchased signs, radio spots, commericals, flyers and a direct mail piece. I want to only be obligated to the voters in the 6th District. I lived in the 6th District for 2 years. I have not recently moved in the district to run for this office like many of the candidates.
It is not good to lie about the resident requirement. Because it is the beginning of the councilmatic term. And if you start with that lie, the council person has began with untruths to the continguents.
I don't think organizations, and/or indviduals should tell the voters who they have chosen, in an attempt to influence them. It should be the decision of the voters in a district; It should not be labor, or old money in the city against the voters.
These are SOME of the many reasons, the 6th District have not ended its proverty, crime, and low voter turn out. Yhe council person has to pay back the all the money by voting for the money interests they receieved as candidates. The candidates take so much money from the endorsers, they are obligated to them not the voters in the districts.
I think ALL of the Propositions on this ballot should not be passed. Because the voters in the 6th District DID NOT have a representative on the council when many of them were passed by the Long Beach City Council. These Propoisitions are the DISRESPECT shown to the voters in the 6th District.
These are also the same reasons the people in the 13 colonies left England to form America. They too felt there was heavy taxation by King Henry Xlll without proper representation.
I especially oppose Proposition D. If the 6th District is not good enought to live in, then it should not be good enough to represent.
