  1. So….how long until Gloria Molina puts her house on the market?

  2. So true! It’s already listed on Zillow!

  3. And it was pretty much a landslide. There is no place for a no-growth career politician like Molina who is obsessed with parking garages. I guess she’s never paid the $6.00 it costs for uber to drive you into downtown LA. We need bike lanes, walkable corridors and a whole lot of the right kind of density brought on by adaptave reuse of all these big honkin industrial buildings. All the cool kids will live in them! Cedillo, you’re next….

  4. Times are changing. The old car-obsessed, low density generation are losing their grip on power. We want a livable, breathable and walkable city….again!!!

  5. Amen! Good bye car culture and all the politicians who back the cult of the car!
