Political Alert--Will Horton hear a Who?
Will California take its first major step towards clean public financing of elections like the voters opted for in Arizona and Maine?

Tomorrow, March 20th, the California State Assembly's Elections Committee is scheduled to vote on AB 2949, the public financing of elections (or "Clean Money") bill introduced by Assemblymember Loni Hancock (D-Berkeley). As of last night, Chair John Longville (D-San Bernardino) and Assemblymember Lloyd Levine (D-Los Angeles) were inclined to support the bill. The bill needs one more vote to clear its first hurdle. The two Republican members of the committee are committed to voting no.

That leaves Assemblymember Jerome Horton (D-Inglewood), fresh from defeating the Walmart, as the key vote. Will Horton, usually motivated by money and self-interest, be true to his constituents' interest and vote for this historic measure? If you live in any of these members districts, call them. For more information check out the website for the California Clean Money campaign:

Stay tuned...

Local recommendation of the day: Aching back?
A good masseuse in Sacramento is Sandra D'Amici (916) 752-8765 -- On J between 26th and 27th.

Unsolicited advice of the day: Have goals
Quiz, who said "the main thing that gets in the way of people achieving their goals is not having any"?
Answer: me (and everyone).

If you want to accomplish anything at all, get goals--big ones--the kind that make you feel like a little kid waiting for Christmas. Write them down on an index card at least once a day. Even that little act will put you on the road to achieving them--no matter what you do (oh, and subscribe to Rich Results newsletter).
Peace, Sara
