Remember to Vote!

Posted by Len Gilbert on November 5, 2012

Vote for Piedmont City CouncilElection day is upon us. You may have noticed (or not!) that there have been no Piedmont Neighborhood News election posts, opinions, or related items. Overall, the tone of the election from local to national has been unpleasant and putting forth any position seemed likely to generate backlash. That’s unfortunate, but for this election cycle PNN has focused on local event notices and announcements about youth sports and local arts and music.

Whatever your position on the local and state ballot measures, whoever is your candidate of choice for local or national office, I hope that you vote on election day and truly make your voice heard in a meaningful way at the ballot box.

Interested in election results or trying to find your polling place? See http://www.smartvoter.org/ca/alm/
