|Voting for the status quo does not solve this problem. The status quo created the problem.|
David DeMulle and Joe Barrett both support Brenda Fortune for VP of Outreach for STNC. That alone is reason to vote for Wally Wharton. But I'll give you a few more:
- No one studies local issues in S-T more than Wally, she gets it, she knows who the players are, all the way up to the City Council level.
- She is passionate about S-T and has been a homeowner here for over 20 years. No one fights as hard and aggressively for our quality of life than Wally.
- Even her opponents call her fearless, something that she is. We need someone who won't cower to the city staff, developers and others who have no idea how our way of life works here - and who want to take it away from us.
When you look around S-T at the shuttered businesses, the excess of pot shops, liquor stores, auto repair, the blight, the daily growing homeless population - basically how blighted our main commercial corridor is, it does not sync with most of the rest of our beautiful town. Something made that happen and something radical has to change to make it better.
Wally Wharton discovered this gem where former Councilman Alarcon
admits the City wants to export homeless to S-T. Did you read that in the news?
Brenda Fortune is a nice lady. But she has been part of the LA City Council staff and all the status quo organizations in S-T for decades. Have things got better? Doesn't seem like it. We thank Brenda for her service, but it's time for a change.
If you expect the town to get better and you plan to vote for all the same old people who have in charge for over a decade, then you have to reconsider the old saying that "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."
If you really care about S-T, are angry about the state of things and want results, then you have to vote for Wally and the new blood that will make a change.
