  1. Post all the choices and let the people decide!

    There are too many inspirational essays that never see the light of day because they were for solely for the eyes of the “the committee”. People need to see this stuff to feel inspired to get off their butts and do something!

Do you have a question you would like to ask Alhambra candidates?

Ask your Alhambra City Council OR your Alhambra Unified School Board Candidates a question ahead of the 2020 elections!
