Dear Los Angeles County Supervisors:
What exactly do you do?
From reading Wikipedia, I have learned that Los Angeles County has 5 supervisors. This number has been the same since 1920, even though a lot more people live here now. Each of you represents more than 2 million people. They call you the Five Little Kings.
Donnie has been a supervisor since 1996.
Zev has been a supervisor since 1994.
Gloria & Yvonne have been supervisors since 1992.
Mikey has been a supervisor since 1980.
You each have great powers. Powers that can be used for good.
You could have led the charge for a county-wide rail network. Yet, you prohibited the use of local money for tunneling.
You could have established regional services for the homeless. Yet, you allowed cities to keep sending them to Skid Row.
You could have made Los Angeles greener, and banned the use of plastic bags. Yet, you made it voluntary.
So, again, what exactly do you do?
