Glendora council may voice opposition to Prop. 19

A couple footnotes on tonight’s Glendora City Council meeting.

The council has on the agenda two items to either oppose/support two California propositions.

The most controversial of the two propositions in Prop. 19, the Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010.

The dubi-ous law (see what I did there?) has been debated to the point where most people probably can’t make heads or tails of it. I think people were less paranoid about the Large Hadron Collider ending the world than Prop. 19.

City staff is asking council to to oppose Prop. 19 on the grounds that it is a public safety risk and the law itself is poorly constructed.

At the same time, the council (this comes as no surprise) is looking to support Prop. 22, The Local Taxpayer, Public Safety, and Transportation Protection Act. The proposition aims to stop state borrowing/taking from local city coffers.

    Why does it matter at all what the Glendora City Council thinks about ANY statewide issue? Do they have some kind of undue influence I don’t know about?

    OK, gotta give you a big thumbs up for the word play. I groaned for a good while after, and shared it with Bruce, who proceeded to stare at me like I had lost my mind.

    The folks of Glendora City are out of touch with modern times. They like to think of themselves as that “small town in the orange groves” still running off colored people that drive into town. The people here are snooty, and tend to think they’re better than people with less income. I know, I live on Sierra Madre, one of the nicest streets in this self absorbed town. :-) I’m not shocked that they would find such a silly reason to vote against something. They can’t even state why its poorly constructed, then again look at the potholes and poorly visibly road signs in this city. You’d think they were all smoking pot instead of getting their jobs done.
