SPECIAL SERIES : 2003 California Recall Election

Everyone has an opinion on the recall, and journalists are certainly no exception. Love it or hate it, the recall has, at the very least, put politics at the fingertips of even the most apolitical of us. People who previously knew nothing about state politics are taking part in the recall: watching the debates, reading about the candidates, and running for office themselves.
[X]press is hosting two dozen of the local candidates in the spirit of offering coverage to those not so coveted by the mainstream media. These are determined candidates who, without the aid of media-savvy spokespeople and a host of political connections, have brought back grassroots campaigning based on serious issues and practical problem-solving rather than glitzy images and established party platforms.
We are proud to welcome these ordinary citizens who, in the true spirit of [X]press publications, are willing to shout out their messages as loudly as they can—regardless of who will hear them out.
Check out our exclusive online coverage of these interesting candidates, including our live webcast of the 22-candidate debate Thursday, September 25 at 7:00 pm.
