Brief pair of negatives on county issues

-A A +A

I disagree with George Chandler regarding Sheriff Marco Lucero. I think it is great that he wants to continue law enforcement activities for which he is properly trained and I hope that the LAPD can find a way to utilize his qualifications legally and maximally. Don’t we need all the help we can get?
I disagree with the County Council on the advisability of the current bond election regarding the Leisure Pool addition to the Walkup Aquatic Center. Much as I support the addition, I almost voted against the bond issue because I think the funds should come out of our GRT excess rather than our property taxes.
Which makes the point that a “no” vote does not necessarily mean opposition to the leisure pool addition itself.
If the council felt a need for an advisory referendum, that is what they should have set in motion. The net vote on this may be ambiguous, whichever way it turns out.
