Faith must be continually earned. Elected leaders win office because voters have faith in their ability to do the right thing and carry out their job duties in a responsible and responsive way. Right now, the responsiveness piece is missing. Effective leaders welcome reasoned input from constituents, answer questions readily, and remain open to review of past decisions.
Many project factors have changed in the last three years. We have raised valid questions about facility sizing, costs, transportation, and tax ramifications. The true financial and educational implications of this expenditure must be clearly communicated to all LASD residents, who deserve a public vote.
