By now you should have received your ballots for the Nov. 8th election in the mail.  If you are like many, who are busy making it with life and don't know the candidates or the issues, don't worry, we got you covered...come to the WE ARE THE 99% Candidate Forum (details below) with your ballot in hand and find out who's who and whats' what!
"We must understand the politics of our community and we must know what politics is supposed to produce. We must know what part politics play in our lives. And until we become politically mature we will always be mislead, lead astray, or deceived or maneuvered into supporting someone politically who doesn’t have the good of our community at heart." - Malcolm X, "Ballot or the Bullet"-1964
