It sounds like the Santa Monica “establishment” is starting to panic over the LUVE initiative , apparently causing Judy Abdo and her cabal to denounce the initiative by saying it is “undemocratic”. Undemocratic!

Is it undemocratic for the residents of Santa Monica to ask for a little say about future developments in their city? Is it undemocratic to ask for a vote? Does the establishment think the lowly residents are too stupid to really understand how the city must grow? How dare they challenge the establishment and their development frenzy! They are getting a little panicky because they fear they may lose some of their grip on our City.

The LUVE initiative will allow Santa Monica residents to democratically help decide the future of our City. Let’s take back some of what is ours.
