The process of choosing a new council member to fill a vacancy was again a disgrace. The council has bypassed the people, as the conservative majority has again taken the opportunity to reinforce their position of power by appointing someone who is above all else, a political crony. However, the most embarrassing event of the meeting was the absurd and offensive introduction of race into the issue, by 22-year council member and now de facto leader of the conservative block, Steve Herfert. I have a lot more to say about all this and it can be found here:

I visit my hometowns of Covina and West Covina quite a bit, thinking about moving back from Reno, NV. So, I keep an eye on things via the Tribune. Sorry to hear that it's a mess there as well as in Reno. Here, I do believe it's worse. I blog at www.dontgrowoldinreno.com If you have elder health stories from CA, please share. Corruption is rampant, sheesh.
