How Come Nobody Cares About the Fate of Los Angeles?
For the first time in my life, like 84% of Los Angeles registered voters, I failed to cast a ballot in last week’s election. It was a primary to select front-running mayoral candidates and city council members, a city attorney, controller, community college trustees and a tax proposition: stuff that should really matter. The four men and a woman who really run LA -- the Board of Supes -- were not on the ballot. Supervisors who used to rule in perpetuity now are term-limited to “only” three consecutive four-year terms.
