There are a bunch of new people paying big money to live here. Check it out and speak up. This, in my opinion, is a bloated, out-of-control government funded by developers, lawyers, architects, accountants, etc., with nefarious connections. For all the old Santa Monicans for Renters’ Rights people, you have been bamboozled and are a pawn in a game we have now all lost.
Anyone with a modicum of common sense knows how out of control this place is. I applaud those who stand up to this overwhelming abuse and ask everyone to examine the real facts. We are paying ridiculous taxes for services not rendered and very bad decisions. Time to stop the madness and take control of how we are being taxed and where the money goes. Roughly $500,000 for two green bike lanes or money to the schools? Your choice. How about turn signals at major intersections? And on and on.
