No waiting — step right up and vote!

When I went to my polling place, the Linda Vista fire station, this morning at 8:20 to vote, the combined precincts there were staffed by eight election workers.

But after the polls had been opened already for an hour and 20 minutes, poll worker Bill Denzell informed me that I was the sixth person to have shown up.

More poll workers than actual voters.

Admittedly, there is just one race on the ballot — the PCC Board of Trustees Area 1 contest between incumbent Geoff Baum and PCC student Steven Gibson.

Not exactly Obama-Palin, er, McCain.

Still and all — Pasadenans are always going on about their love for their city college. What could be more important than deciding on a crucial leadership issue at the college?
Where is the love, people? Where are the votes?

Polls stay open until 8. Take those election officials away from their novels and newsapers and give them something democratic to do.

  1. Maybe the Pasadena Star News would actually get around to revealing the specific allegations of incompetency and malfeasance surrounding recently-deposed PCC President Paulette Perfumo.

    Then again, considering Larry Wilson’s intense sympathies for the public education cabal, maybe the Star News WON’T ever get around to revealing the specific allegations.

  2. Isn’t it coincidental that both Ramon Miramontes and Berlinda Brown were key figures in Robin Salzer’s council campaign in 2007. Nobody heard of these two when they pulled papers. They ran the same type of grassroots type of campaign that Robin ran and won. Robin had to unfortunately deal with the racist tirades from Joe Hopkins or he would have won as well. What has this guy started here? Talk on the street is that he’s not thru with politics and that his team is plotting other races. Will it be Robinson or Madison? Who else from their camp is going to run. Watch these guys. Somethings up.

  4. Salzer & Miramontes are up to something. Salzer is financially stronger than Madison and Miramontes has the unions. I won’t discount Madison financially or unionwise but these guys are sharp. It will an interesting 2011. A more prudent idea for the city would be for Salzer or Miramontes to knock out Robinson like they did Castro with Berlinda Brown.

  5. Hmm…. this is a piece of writing I’m willing to take a bullet for. Absolutely hits the mark. I have some minor concerns but I don’t desire to commence a lengthy post and somebody might flame me. Just wish to maintain this blog civil and clean. Wouldn’t like any hatemail would i? lol keep it up!

  6. Ive been lurking over here for the longest time and eventually have the urge to comment. First of all, I wish to thank you for the wonderful posts. Second, thank you for writing Top quality posts and not just rehashed posts discovered elsewhere. Absolutely a cool web page I’d advise….well, I’ve been bookmarking this web page, that need to be enough proof of me recommending this lol.

  7. Cool, I finally stumbled to a site about this! I was daydreaming about it this morning (well technically evening dreaming as it was evening time ) and now I discover this site. Coincidence alright. Might be checking back!

  8. I dont find out about you, but Ive been looking forward to this day for almost a couple of years. There is a lot of good news out now there: AFSCME and the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee obtaining loans to fuel their own attack ads; Barney Frank lending himself $200, 000. despite having their own money many people dont know when to stop spending, why should we expect they are able to do any better by using ours?

  9. I have been in the beginning treated with the Ipl which is not the most practical method to get hair removal. I began with whole lower body hair removal. I visited an Dr . that used a great older fractional laser machine yet ended up with with spotty parts. Next I thought I would purchase a laser hair remover. I’m delighted and will be starting additional regions of my body soon. Their pricing also fit my spending budget which is a tremendous benefit.

  10. I was doing laser hair removal applications for over a year at present on my facial beard. Before then I had a really thicker dark beard. I’m excited about the final results. The actual hairs have become thin and I have not gone back for re-application for about six months. I will mention that it did feel painful slightly on my upper lip and there had been instances that I had a little redness on my neck. I would recommend Ipl to people with thicker hairs or have got major areas of hair they want to eliminate. For the males who might like to do their own rough beard be prepard to get spots over the coming several weeks and lots of people saying dude what is up with your beard.

  11. Just about all that is on my mind is cancer sticks. I really don’t wish to take a drag and if somebody offered me one here and now, I would have to decline. I am in a fairly lousy mental condition and have had trouble sleeping but yet I do know I should always end up tough. The e-cigs may help me out in the end.

  12. I stopped smoking last week and it really is beginning to hit me right now. My girl friend keeps saying I won’t be able to keep going but I am so sure about this I can’t fail. Today I began experianceing discomfort inside my belly and I genuinely would like a smoke. I can’t give up mainly because I’m quitting smoking for our youngsters. I am blessed to have the electric cigarette review. It is often incredibly helpful to me.

  13. Pretty impressive article. I just stumbled upon your site and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed reading your opinions. Any way I’ll be subscribing to your feed and I hope you post again soon.

  14. I stopped cold turkey over the weekend and its starting to make me feel crappy today. My spouse tells me I probably will not get it done but I’m so determined about this I can. recently I began experianceing pain inside my lower stomach and I kinda am craving a cigarette. I wont give into the craving since I am quitting for my children. I’m grateful to have the electronic cigarettes. It really has been beneficial to me.

  15. I started smoking while I was a kid. It was basically the hugest mistake of my life. Today I am 45 years old and I’ve got COPD. When attempting to quit smoking, I came upon the e cigarette and i intend to see how it works. With some luck, it’s going to assist me with this particular bad dependence.

  16. I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you create this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you? Plz reply back as I’m looking to create my own blog and would like to know wheere u got this from. thanks

  17. I changed techs simply because after a few years of laser light, I believed the benefits are not worth it. Next I purchased the laser hair removal. They will guarantee that after 2 years in case that hair grows back again, all treatments will be totally free. They have got both fractionated laser and also Ipl, but I am planning to stick with laserlight now as Intense pulsed light did not seem to decrease the amount of hair coming back.
