Phil, we are ranked #227 out of 231 cities in CA. WIth safest being #1. https://www.safewise.com/blog/safest-cities-california/
Stephen M
30:30
Where would the homeless center move to?
Joan Grossman
30:41
Not in favor of the dog park. Would like to clear out the homeless as best we can in a compassionate way and have the pork for everyone to use. Remember in pre-pandemic days it was also used for movies in the summertime and that flies in the face of it being a dog park
Stephen M
32:01
I think the dog park is an excellent idea. The busier the park, the better
Stephen M
33:51
@Phil Cloverfield makes sense.
Janet McLaughlin
35:22
SM is in the top 10 most dangerous cities in CA. https://www.covesmart.com/blog/most-dangerous-cities-in-california-in-2020#:~:text=The%20violent%20crime%20rate%20in%20Santa%20Monica%20is%20874%20violent,crime%20while%20in%20Santa%20Monica.
Stephen M

The developers can do it in cheaper areas, but they chose SM because they want the biggest bang for their buck
Stephen M
01:01:07
It only took her 10 years!
Stephen M

Thanks Mario!
Jim Pickrell
01:04:45
Question for any of the speakers:
Jim Pickrell
01:05:02
Is the Miramar project go-ahead past the point of no return?
Jim Pickrell
01:05:11
Can this project still be stopped?
Alissa Finerman
01:05:39
Ok Jim, we will ask
Stephen M
01:05:40
@Jim, i think it still has to go through the Coastal Commission.
Jim Pickrell
01:09:05
I would love to hear what Mario thinks on this issue.
Stephen M
01:09:20
@Charles Andrews, do you thing Gleam will be able to adjust to the new landscape?
Jim Pickrell
01:09:27
The coastal commission is a distant hope and we have no control over them.
Jim Pickrell
01:09:39
I don't consider that a real plan.
Jim Pickrell
01:10:10
If the city council decides to stop the Miramar, is that within their authority or has this gone past the point of no return?
Stephen M
01:11:06
@Jim, then I guess there’s not much to go on at this point. I think it’s too late to reverse the vote…good question if reversing the vote is possible.
Joan Grossman
01:12:01
I agree that we need more information from our local district and all the other ones so you know what the issues are whether it’s an election time or not
Stephen M
01:12:03
He froze
Terry
01:12:05
he frooze
Manju Raman
01:13:05
question for Mario:
Manju Raman
01:13:58
gleam had to recuse this round, whatever happened to the past years votes for Miramar from her?
Manju Raman
01:14:40
doesn’t that mean anything?
Joan Grossman
01:15:10
What made people rally this year when they didn’t in past years
Mario Fonda-Bonardi
01:16:25
Yes Gleam has had the responsibility to reveal her possible conflict of interest for the last 8-10? Years.
Betzi Richardson
01:16:27
There's one possibility: if Transparency could check Ana Jara's donations carefully - if she received anything from the Miramar before the election - the vote could be invalidated! through a law suit, because it's on the record that Terry received donations.
Stephen M
01:17:38
Her votes stood out like a sore thumb.
Manju Raman
01:18:02
if Gleam then had a conflict of interest for the past years, then why is there no accountability for those votes?
Stephen M
01:19:12
Maybe City Council should have her investigated for breaching a conflict of interest for the past ten years. What IS that?
Stephen M
01:20:24
Thanks Charles!!! Love your columns!
