And yet another view...

-A A +A

In his Friday Guest View Point column, Jim Rickman said: “ It would be a real stretch for  anyone to argue that the referendum, recall or initiative process in this community has been abused during the past 30 years.”
Many of us would vehemently disagree with this view. Some have been appalled that the 529 referendum delay cost LA County and Schools the full development of Trinity Site by delaying action until the collapse of the U.S. economy in 2008. Others have been dismayed that the process unnecessarily delayed the construction of the new County building, forcing county employees to work in transportable trailers and costing County taxpayers extra years of rental expenses.
We have also apparently lost the opportunity to attract visitors with a leisure pool addition  to the “Blue Whale” because our councillors  feared that making a decision would lead to yet another referendum wasting time, effort and money.
