Represent! is a new blog for you, the people of Southern California. Our reporters and editors will take a good, hard look at how government and politics affect your daily lives (both the good and the bad). We will suggest ways you can become involved in the process. And we hope to provide a welcoming place for you to come together to discuss the issues, candidates and events that matter most to you. Please let us know what you think and tell us what you’d like to see here.
