Hawthorne Voters Speak Out
The majority of voters who turned out in Hawthorne today say they're looking for a change for their city.
Voters say new people and new ideas could turn things around... in a community that's seen some hard times recently.
Hawthorne lost its police and fire departments earlier this year because the city just couldn't afford to run them; The former city manager was fired for getting the city into debt. And voters say they're tired of these hard times.
"We're friends with one of the policeman that lost his job... and then to step back like the community had to... we needed some better leadership," Mark Moore, voter, said.
The city is deep in debt.
However, other voters say that's not entirely the incumbents' fault.
Pat McCollough, a voter, said she thinks most of the incumbents did a great job with the limited resources they had... they just need to keep the residents' concerns in mind.
