2 Urban Girls 2016 Voter Guide

images2 Urban Girls is excited to present to you our 2016 voting guide.  This list includes local and state ballot measures.  FYI, this blog will never endorse a candidate for judge. They don’t debate and visions of Mark Ciavarella’s deception as a republican with democrat rhetoric used for selling kids to prisons for cash, still dances in our head.

Candidate/Measure/Proposition 2 Urban Girls says… Why?
President Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump Jill Stein Benghazi.  The POTUS leads the armed forces and Hillary’s handling of the Benghazi debacle has me concerned of how she will lead the military should she be elected.
Congress Sen. Isadore Hall or Nanette Barragan Isadore Hall Isadore lost the endorsement of all major newspapers, however, the area now known as CA44, formerly the 37th District, has a long history of being represented by Black legislators: Walter Tucker, Juanita Millender McDonald, Laura Richardson and Yvonne Brathwaite-Burke.
