The Democratic Party is playing into the concerns of the homeless and crime-ridden population in the upcoming fall elections. These issues dominated the primaries and have been the focus of democratic campaigns. But will voters take those concerns to November? It remains to be seen whether the election will be a referendum for a candidate. The key question is: Will voters’ fears of crime and homelessness last until November?
In California, crime and homelessness have become a major concern of voters. In the primary election, a Democrat-turned-Republican Republican won the primary campaign as a crime fighter and will face a progressive prosecutor in the November general election. While the primary results are not decisive, Republican Rick Caruso is committed to increasing the size of the Los Angeles police department, and Karen Bass is a progressive supporter of former U.S. Rep. Who has campaigned on issues such as homelessness and crime. .
Boudin’s recollection reflected the frustration and grief of coastal cities. And the GOP’s message about being “tough on crime” didn’t reach all Californians. Meanwhile, Rob Bonta, appointed by Governor Gavin Newsom, is widely believed to be a liberal reformer of criminal justice and a supporter of public schools.
As a result of these concerns, a Democrat-led reflection campaign has been launched with the aim of recalling Gascony. The campaign is garnering 67,000 signatures to run in Southern California. This effort to remember is funded by conservative voices in state law and order, but has not received a white paper. Liberal candidates Tim Lineberger and Mike Gonzalez have garnered the support of several celebrities, including Kim Kardashian, Snoop Dogg and Gwyneth Paltrow. In addition, Elon Musk has also admitted.
The upcoming midterm elections will provide another chance to test the new candidate. In California, Democratic Rep. Katie Porter will face Republican Scott Baugh in the newly formed 47th District. Porter has gained national attention in his congressional hearings for his aggressive questioning of business executives and a polarized political atmosphere has made him a target of the GOP.
Will California voters fear crime and homelessness last November? And what should Democrats do to address these concerns? The first is to address the chronic shortage of affordable housing and the continuing failure to increase new construction in the state. While California is working on these issues, the state needs to address the housing shortage and the need to address these issues.
The second issue is the growing homeless population in the state. The city of San Francisco is home to nearly 41,000 people living on the streets of North Miami Beach, Florida. In recent weeks, a Times series about a homeless boy named Dasani has sparked public outrage. Homeless people are more likely to be victims of crime than perpetrators.
Will the anger of California voters over high inflation, homelessness, and high gasoline prices turn into a tsunami against the leadership of the democratic state? Although these issues caused widespread frustration, they did not lead to massive abstentions in the voting booth. As a result, voter turnout was very low. Only about 25 percent of voters voted in the primary election, the lowest. Two years ago, nearly half of the electorate voted in the June primary election.
While the harsh political climate of the state continues to make its way to the polls, Democrats are trying to win neighborhoods. Although a bleak political climate is hampering the work of Democrats, their message is focusing on issues such as abortion, weapons and immigration. This is the recipe for the November disaster. So is there any hope for Democrats?
On one side of the spectrum are two progressive candidates. Chesa Boudin, a progressive Democrat, ran for the San Francisco District Attorney to end mass imprisonment and resolve racial differences in law enforcement. Voters were particularly impressed by the stories of his life, in which his parents were involved in the far-left Weather Underground and the vicious theft of armored cars.
Calling San Francisco a progressive prosecutor has implications for other Democratic candidates in the state. Across the Bay Area, where homicide rates are four times higher than in San Francisco, it is likely to be lost by a district attorney who aims to change criminal justice policies. But it has a strong 31% margin in its district. Will the fears of California voters lead to a general election in the face of crime and homelessness?

Hello, it’s Thursday, June 9th, and here are the stories you shouldn’t miss:
“Voters are scared, unfortunately, they feel chaos on the street”
San Francisco Dist. Atty. Chesa Boudin Rick Caruso played for LA mayoral candidate for success, fearing crime and homelessness played well in the California primaries. But will these concerns lead to the fall election?
“What voters are looking for is to acknowledge the concerns they face, whether it’s crime, public safety or the cost of living,” said David Binder, who has worked with Mayor Karen Bass’s campaign and polls with other Democrats nationwide. “We need to acknowledge that voters are terrified, unhappy, that they feel there is chaos to be solved on the street and in society.”
Tuesday’s results showed that even in cities where the crime actually fell, voters also voted for security concerns. Although it is almost unanimous that crime has become a major problem among Democratic strategists, there is less consensus on how to deal with it.

Away from school. Will this help California cope with COVID-19?
Coronavirus cases are on the rise in Los Angeles County as students count the number of days they stay in school. What will the summer holidays mean for COVID-19? Health experts say it will be difficult to predict accurately because the virus throws curved balls.
The official count for county cases is likely to drop significantly after the end of the school year at LA Unified on Friday. The weekly exams for all students and staff in the district are about half of the test results reported to the region. Without these tests, experts say the county would have relied more on data from wastewater treatment sites and reported cases in high-risk environments such as nursing homes, hospitals and homeless shelters.

Drought, fires and trade are pushing for a massive plan to reduce the forest in Big Bear Lake
For decades, thousands of acres of undeveloped land north of Big Bear Lake have been considered the “wild side” of the mountain resort, a two-hour drive from Los Angeles.
But the U.S. Forest Service has warned that the drought has worsened, with a bucolic landscape that poses a direct threat to the San Bernardino mountain community, which has a population of 5,500 throughout the year but has risen to more than 100,000 between July 4 and Labor Day.

With the summer season upon us, thoughts often turn to travel. Anyone considering a trip today, however, is likely to be frustrated by rising aircraft prices, soaring gas prices and general inflation. However, there is one consolation: 25 free things to do in California. These include taking pictures of the 26-foot-tall Marilyn Monroe sculpture in Palm Springs, walking through the St. Louis Bishop’s Farmers Market, and viewing murals in San Diego’s Chicano Park.
Since there is no real free lunch (or free road trip), however, it will cost you something to get to and from these places. But when you’re there, your wallet can breathe easy.

1909: The Times reports that Alice Ramsey and her friends were leaving for San Francisco.
One hundred and thirteen years ago today, June 9, 1909, Alice Huyler Ramsey and three other women embarked on a 3,800-mile journey from New York to San Francisco. Ramsey would be the first woman to cross America. A few days later, a report by The Times called the 22-year-old “one of America’s bravest drivers.” … There is no more expert female guide in this country than Mrs. Ramsey. He has been driving a car for the last year without anyone’s help, and he has made long journeys without any help. ”
According to a 2009 article in The Times, Ramsey’s feat — which would enter the Automotive Hall of Fame — “a century ago, it was believed that driving a car was a man of virtue, including good judgment and decision-making. voting like. More than a decade before women got the right to vote, Alice Huyler Ramsey proved to the world that a woman had the necessary virtues. ”
It wasn’t easy. Everything was driven by Ramsey. In a four-seater outdoor touring car (top speed 40 mph), a downpour of rain in Iowa hit a free barn, where the horses were frightened; they were often submerged because the gravel-free cart track turned into a peat bog. A dozen tires were punctured. In the West, the roads were also rough with non-existent ones; the crossing of a river led to a broken axis; they were sometimes crossed using railway bridges. “Ramsey sent his friends across the bridges and drove Maxwell’s motorbike up the 3/4 mile of bumpy roads while he listened to the approaching train.”
