The election is upon us
Anyone that’s been paying attention in recent years knows that the Agran team is all about obstruction. Their vision for the Great Park was repudiated by scandal, with $230 million wasted. Now, like children who want to take their ball and go home, they oppose all progress at the park.
The fact is that promises are now being kept on the former Marine Corps Air Station El Toro.
There’s a beautiful new high school and K-8 school in and around the Great Park Neighborhoods, not to mention that community’s parks, trails, homes, and affordable housing for seniors, with more to come.
Other major Great Park initiatives are discussed in this issue: the first phase of the fantastic Sports Park is nearing completion, and there’s an exciting proposal to build an interim music amphitheater on part of the former base near the train station, a first step toward replacing Irvine Meadows.
But if the old Agran team is put in charge, led by Mary Ann Gaido, all that progress will come to a screeching halt, and the city will be in for at least two years of gridlock and obstruction.
That’s why I’ll be voting for Don Wagner, Christina Shea and Anthony Kuo. I hope you will, too.
