Everyone knows Sacramento is polarized and that nothing gets done because our "representatives" are galvanized in their positions. Polarization and ideology have ruined Sacramento. We need someone who wants to reach across the aisle and take steps to understand people.
That's why I voting for and endorsing Marc Levine, a Democrat running for Assembly. I've been with him when he's attended meet & greet functions that are packed with Republicans and Democrats. And guess what? Everyone appreciates his centrist views and his desire to reach across the aisle.
But what does his opponent, fellow Democrat Michael Allen, do? Brands Levine a "Republican." The California Democratic Party is sending multiple slanderous fliers full of inaccurate statements about Levine to your mailbox.
We don't tolerate bullying on the playground, and we shouldn't tolerate adult bullying from the California Democratic Party, either. I guess we know how Mr. Allen works with opposing voices in the Capitol. Indeed, for Allen it appears it's not about anything except dividing people.
Will the Allen camp be able to buy this election by outspending Levine by 5 to 1 from donations from outside sources? About 80 percent of Levine's donations are from locals.
If you buy into smearing and polarizing individuals, vote Allen. But if you want to take positive steps to fix Sacramento's divided and broken system, vote for Marc Levine for Assembly on Nov. 6.
