In addition to a concern for representation of Latinx from the Pico neighborhood the fact of direct and
connected representation on Santa Monica City Council from every neighborhood would make for a City more concerned about the quality of life for residents as opposed to business and tourism.
Think truly affordable housing vs. Mc Mansion and luxury apartments.  Beat- walking or bike- riding cops in our neighborhoods vs. multiple police cruisers for each auto robbery or Pier incident.  Think clean sidewalks with signage that advocates walking vs. scooting.
Think about a group of people with easy access to their representative on the council and a council made up of people who actually understand the needs of the neighborhood they live in and cooperate to bring solutions to
Improve living in Santa Monica for all of us.
