The bottom line on Measure W

Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and business/economics journalist Michael Hiltzik, in Sunday’s Los Angeles Times business section, concludes his article on Claremont’s Measure W with the following observation:“What should give Claremont voters pause is the scale of Golden State’s spending on this municipal election. It’s not unusual for both sides to put their thumbs on the scale. But Golden State’s 10-to-1 spending, in a community of 11,000 customers, is a very fat thumb. It’s standing up for its shareholders’ interests, and the voters shouldn’t forget that.”
