Local Politics and you
Local elections often impact us more than we realize. In this event, we will discuss how you can effect change through the upcoming March election.
On March 7th, Los Angeles voters will be electing new school board members, a new city council, and our next Mayor.
But most importantly, Measure S, a citywide ballot initiative, will DRASTICALLY LIMIT NEW HOUSING DEVELOPMENT across the city: in Westwood, new projects will be capped at a maximum of 3 stories tall. As Bruins, we are already facing some of the highest housing costs in the nation -- a limit on new housing construction is the last thing we need.
Help SAVE STUDENT HOUSING. Join us, the folks that brought you BruinsVOTE! last fall, to turn out the vote and make sure Measure S fails. In a local election like this one, 5,000 Bruins voting could reasonably flip the result!
