Letters to the Editor: L.A. needs more politicians? How a bigger City Council makes government smaller
I have a solution to Los Angeles’ crime problem.
The problem is money. The solution is to raise taxes to the highest rate in the nation.
Why? Why raise taxes to higher heights?

You do the same. When you pay off your home mortgage, the
