Councilman Dennis Zine has worked hard to bring a much needed Costco to Woodland Hills. Folks need the jobs and residents like to shop there otherwise Costco wouldn't risk the capital to invest in the area. Still some wacko NIMBYs with plenty of time and their hands (perhaps some other folks who need to smoke some pot or at least get more sex than they may be currently getting) are calling for Zine to be impeached. Anyway nimrods City Council members can't be impeached. They are recalled. And as Phil Jennerjahn found out it's a hell of a nut to crack. Even well organized and wealthy stakeholders couldn't muster a recall of the then most hated member of the Clowncil, Jack Weiss.
The City of Ontario would like to take over the Los Angeles owned airport there but Mayor Villaraigosa and LA City leaders have opposed such a plan. Ontario feels it can have more control over it's own destiny if it were to own the airport as well as perhaps turn around the fortunes of the flagging airport. Now Ontario gets some high powered support as the Southern California Association of Governments has come out in favor of flipping the airport to Ontario.
For sometime many in LA have suggested that having an actual seamless connection between Blue Line and Gold Line trains would boost ridership and significantly increase options for riders to use public transit. Now it appears the MTA is one step closer to building the Regional Connector between the two systems.
