Tuesday’s election has huge implications for food politics (see previous post). I’ve been asked to state an opinion. In case myviews are not obvious, here’s what I’m voting for and hoping you will too:
- If you care abou the issues discusssed here: Vote to reelect President Obama.
- If you live in California, lead the nation: Vote YES on 37 (GMO labels).
- If you live in Richmond, CA: Vote YES on Measures N and O (soda taxes and where that money will go).
- If you live in El Monte, CA: Vote YES on Measure H (soda taxes).
It’s great to vote with your fork. But the food movement needs real votes.
Vote with your vote!
Next public appearance
This is the rescheduling of the lecture I was supposed to give on October 10. The taxi driver went through red light at entrance to the Pulaski, was pulled over and found to be driving without a license. We never made it. The lecture is on food politics. It starts at 6:00. Free and open to the public. The Newark Museum is at 49 Washington Street. This time, I’ll take the PATH.
