Socialist party gets 45,000 votes in LA County elections

(I meant to blog this earlier. Emphasis added.)

The Party for Socialism and Liberation polled an extraordinary 45,000 votes in the recent June 3 Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors election.

In the 5th District, Stephen Hinze, a warehouse worker, garnered 21 percent of the vote— 25,047—against 28-year incumbent Mike Antonovich

Marylou Cabral, a Cal State Long Beach student and anti-war activist, finished second out of three candidates in her race against right-wing incumbent Don Knabe. Cabral won 19,915 votes—about 18 percent—in the 4th District.

PSL got considerable mention in mainstream media and this astounding showing is testament to their skills as organizers and the desire of the public for real change.
