I can easily support Proposition 1, with $15 million designated for Venice Beach. It is not so easy to decide about Proposition 5. It is obvious that we need more responsive local government. The Airport Commission added 8,000 parking spaces just as a new Master Plan is being prepared; the Community Redevelopment Agency gave a platinum parachute to a former director. So we should give more power to the City Council, right? Over the past months, my neighborhood has been trying to prevent the CRA from giving $47 million to Melvin Simon & Associates for the Hollywood redevelopment project, unless the firm backs off from its Marina Place project, which will decimate our community.
