Crimeni, Wright and Cook were the only candidates fully supporting local public safety staying in place. So if you like the public safety services you currently have, vote accordingly.
Milne, Youssef, and Coleman seem bent on "contracting out" EVERY city department, especially public safety.
Avila seems to support local public safety, but has thoughts of changing Federal laws at a local level. He seems to "waver" a bit on keeping services "in-house" or looking outside for public safety services.
Ask yourselves one question as far as public safety (Police and Fire) are concerned...
Do you want to remain in control of your public safety departments, or do you wish to lose control, by having public safety controlled by the state and county?
I can tell you that bargaining with unions is best done at a smaller, local level, versus the high-powered state and county unions.
Yes, they are all union workers, county and state. Union workers are not our enemies. Unions have done a lot to improve working conditions for ALL workers!
With that being said, it is FAR easier to deal with a smaller local union, versus a larger county or state union.

Public employee union greed is a huge problem everywhere in Cali.
Police, fire prison, guard unions bribe the politicians and rape the tax paying citizen.

If you really care -- no on 30, yes on 32. Save Save Cali.
