AB 805 can be dangerous for our smaller cities
Meeting Invoice 805 is on the governor’s desk. As former mayor of Encinitas and a previous chairman of the San Diego Affiliation of Governments, I feel, if signed, it might really weaken regional governance and would permit huge cities to bully the small. At present it takes 10 cities with fifty one % of the weighted vote to maneuver or cease a problem at SANDAG. AB 805 would change that to only 4.
Sadly, for some purpose, Encinitas Metropolis Council lately voted four-1 (thanks, Mark Muir) to help this horrible invoice, which can, until vetoed by the governor, tremendously weaken Encinitas and all different smaller cities in North County and East County. It additionally would do nothing to deal with the problems that induced consternation relating to the forty-yr tax receipt projections.
