the fine line between spam and not spam

I got a mass campaign email from mayoral candidate Bernard Parks yesterday. It was announcing the opening of his new campaign headquarters, to take place Saturday. I was going to write a post about how I didn't sign up to get emailed, and wonder how he got my address, but then I realized it's listed on the DLANC contacts page. I'm guessing they got the address through that page or another DONE (Department of Neighborhood Empowerment) list.

In that case, I approve. I am an elected official (I still laugh when I say that, even though it's true), and as such I should be accessible by those who have LA issues, especially those relating to downtown. And as someone who works in City Hall, isn't Parks a DLANC stakeholder?
