If one has some spare time and is up for a drive. Take a day and head up to the Owens Valley
. As you proceed pass the "Fresh Jerky Stand"
near Olancha, one gets a stark reminder of the cost incurred in the quest to build a "City of Angels".
Nahai will take the reins of a bloated, inefficient, and wasteful example of government
, sinking fast. First on Nahai's list of tasks, is selling a "Snake Oil"
of a proposal to raise water and electric rates. This, as the Mayor and Nahai will want you believe, is to help the utility upgrade its aging infrastructure. Further, your increased rates would provide the "investment base" to pay for a "Greener and Kinder DWP". Yet, cynics will opine on who will benefit from these investments
Whatever way the DWP "glows and flows" so does the direction of the city. Yet hours to the north, winds spread the toxic dust of past deeds that still await their "day of reckoning".
