MAXINE WATERS FAILED US
Congresswoman Maxine Waters never came to our aid, so I ran against her twice. Here is an article about my candidacy against her. And I plan to run against her again. She to often speaks out of both sides of her mouth.

35TH DISTRICT, U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES — Incumbent Maxine Waters faces challenger Carl McGill. The district includes Westchester and Playa Vista, parts of Playa del Rey, Gardena, Hawthorne, Inglewood, and Lawndale.

MAXINE WATERS was elected in November 2004 to her eighth term with 80 percent support from voters.

She was the former chair of the Congressional Black Caucus and for several years has held the leadership position of Chief Deputy Whip of the Democratic Party in the House.

She is co-chair of the House Democratic Steering Committee and serves on the House Committee on Financial Services, the Subcommittee on Housing and Community Opportunity, the Subcommittee on Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit, the Subcommittee on Domestic and International Monetary Policy, Trade, and Technology.

She also serves on the Committee on the Judiciary and its subcommittees on Courts, the Internet, Intellectual Property, Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, Immigration, Border Security, and Claims.

In June 2005, she founded and became chair of the "Out of Iraq" Congressional Caucus, which now has more than 70 members.

Her legislative goals have included economic and urban development for inner cities, protecting the environment, promoting peace and human rights, and developing minority AIDS initiatives.

She has served on the Democratic National Committee since 1980 and was given leadership roles in five presidential campaigns.

Prior to her election in 1990, Waters spent 14 years in the California State Assembly where she helped create legislation that divested state pension funds from South Africa, prohibited police strip searches for nonviolent misdemeanors, and installed affirmative action measures.

She has a Bachelor of Arts degree from California State University at Los Angeles and began her career in public service as a teacher and volunteer coordinator with Head Start.

CARL MCGILL is a community activist and former police officer from the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD).

He settled in Inglewood with his mother and siblings after moving from New Haven, Connecticut in 1974.

McGill says he spent his teenage years in the 1970s defending himself from gangs but he found strength through God and a recreational staff job at Inglewood's Rogers Park.

He joined the LAPD in 1985 and "went after gangs with a vengeance." He spent 16 years on the force and became a national expert on street gangs.

He was once named "Person of the Week" by ABC World News and honored by Newsweek magazine as a "Future California Crime-solver."

McGill was also recognized by many journalists for his work in internal police reform after the Rodney King police beating in 1992 and he has been credited with a role in forcing former LAPD Police Chief Daryl Gates to resign.

He now works as a criminal justice professor for the University of Phoenix and founded the Black Chamber of Commerce and the Chamber of Commerce of Los Angeles County.

As a business consultant, McGill owns a fictitious business name service to help small businesses and publishes an online newsletter.

He is also the assistant western regional director for the National Congress of Racial Equality.

He bills himself as a conservative Democrat who supports the war the terrorism, education reform, immigration reform, and rights for gun owners.

He supports the Urban/Inner-city Democratic Club's political philosophy, which is based on a long list of principles adopted by the American Conservative Union.

McGill has a master of arts degree in behavioral science from California State University Dominguez Hills.
