Eric Garcetti's big priority is aiding and abetting illegal invaders of the US. He does thatRead More effectively. If you think rails matter to him, just look at the "Subway to the Sea". How much did that cost, and how did that work out? I'd love to hear his response, but I've heard his foul mouth. So I'd rather not hear anything from him.

I'm surprised he didn't bow down to taxi drivers like the previous mayors that didn't build a railRead More system to the airport. That should have been the very first rail we had. Opening every lane on the freeways would probably solve most congestion issues we have but then the politicians would have to give up federal funding. Now we have to live with bike lanes that cause more traffic cause they wanted the federal funds that came with that project so I don't think any of these projects are gonna lessen traffic their just big projects to keeptheir donors in business.

If things are that bad, why not stop building new homes, businesses for awhile until we get someRead More substantial rainfall?This is a short-term contribution, I realize, and affects more than just water, but then also do what the others have suggested and institute the grey water/rainwater systems in the future. It's just ridiculous that we are told to conserve, conserve, conserve everything and then all that does is drive costs up. And, building continues so demand increases, etc. Darned if you do, darned if you don't.

If they truly want to make a difference in water usage they would target the city and stateRead More governments who continue to approve new high density residential building. Every time they approve another new development project they are adding to the drain on water. And, fracking needs to stop. Forcing millions of gallons of water and chemicals under pressure into wells in California is a dangerous travesty. Not only does the process of fracking use water, it contaminates the ground water. Yes there is a drought but it is our city and state government who can make a difference, but they continue to build new housing and frack wells to encourage oil production. It is all about money.

@Alex Bloated pensions of our teachers?! Teachers pay for their own pensions. The school districtRead More doesn't contribute a single dime to any teacher's pension. Unlike the city, county and state workers, they get their money matched. For every dime they contribute to their pensions, the state, county or city matches that dime. What would be nice would be to have the district pay for supplies so the teachers don't have to shell out the money. I understand that extra curricular activities cost money but that is something you choose to participate in. I would love to see the parent's reaction to having to provide construction paper, writing paper, glue sticks, scissors, paint, tape, staples, etc. to their child's education. I know that was just a few of things I had to provide for my students each and every year.
KarmaKing March 19, 2014 at 01:57 pm
"Teachers pay for their own pensions. The school district doesn't contribute a single dime toRead More any teacher's pension." Not so Sarah. Teacher's contribute 8%, school districts contribute 8.25% and the State kicks in 5%. That's according to CALSTRS which is the State's teacher pension system ( http://www.calstrs.com/general-information/plan-funding-faqs) and a recent OC Register article here: http://www.ocregister.com/articles/state-602273-percent-districts.html. of course, if CALSTRS can't address it's $70 billion unfunded liability, taxpayers have to pick up that tab also.

@Donna, straying slightly from the topic, the answer to your question is: ownership and money.Read More Privately owned land cannot (will not) be directly taken from a developer.
