ICT: Vote NO on recall but YES to Bustamante
Friday, August 29, 2003

" It is entirely proper and a welcome moment that a Latino with roots in the indigenous vein of the old Californios, a friend to Indian tribes at a crucial moment in their development, would be the one to scramble the plans of the right-wing ideologues. [Lt. Gov. Cruz] Bustamante, the grandson of Mexican immigrants to the Central Valley, would be California�s first Latino governor since 1875. His candidacy has the Latino community riveted. Latino grass-roots organizations are mounting energetic voter registration and get-out-the-vote drives for election day. Combine the Latino energy with the emerging Native American financial clout, and a great political partnership appears in the offing."
