Kudos to Ms. Laurie on her bull’s-eye letter (“Get real,” Letters to the Editor, April 28).
I have been a citizen of Santa Monica for over 45 years and I have watched this beautiful community gradually deteriorate over the past few years because of the dictatorial policies and arrogant disregard for the citizens of Santa Monica by the City Council.
We all deserve to get what we vote for. But have all the voters in Santa Monica simply become robots to be controlled by the City Council? Have we become “low information” voters who just don’t care what happens to our community and rubber stamp our current regime?
The citizens of Santa Monica must wake up and take back our community before it becomes a garish nightmare of overdevelopment, overpopulation, overspending, stifling traffic and increasing crime. Voice your concerns!
