Mayor Sam's Hotsheet for Friday
Bigger restrictions are coming to public comment at the LA City Council, but in El Segundo they're going the other direction. Now that Mayor Mike Gordon - a sensitive soul who did not want to be criticized and put Garcetti-esque restrictions on public comment at Council meetings in Fred Sanford's favorite city - is history, the Council is making it easier for residents to address their Council.
Some education about economics may be in order. According to one poll, a significant number of Californians actually support Arnold's "Hilary-esque" health care scam.

Mission College in Sylmar is the little college that could. Its been around since the 60s but its only had a permanent campus for the last 20 years or so. And as it is, the compact campus is far smaller that any other local community college certainly only a smidgen of the sprawling Valley and Pierce Colleges. That being said, the Board of Trustees of the Los Angeles Community College District are looking to expand the campus. Thursday, the Trustees approved a master plan and a final environmental impact report for the project. One controversial aspect of the project is for the district to aquire a neigboring parcel of land slated for single family home construction by eminent domain. This would be a mistake. Most would suspect that this old, dead Republican mayor is generally opposed to eminent domain and you would be right. More importantly when there is a shortage of homes its not a good idea to abandon the opportunity to build additional single family homes. The board should go back to the drawing board and examine opportunties for the campus to expand up and take advantage of infill development in nearby San Fernando.
