From this article: "If the purpose was to increase voter turnout and achieve a more robust civic democracy, the speakers argued, even year elections qualified as “a no-brainer.”"
If only that were true. The plaintiffs duped by their attorney do not want increased voter participation nor a more robust democracy. And neither do half the incumbent city council members, which is obviously why the city never introduced even year elections as part of this legal settlement.

Hard to do anything with this proposal until its advocate specifies what will happen to the existing government in Isla Vista.
Will any new Community Services District take over parks, water, sewer, fire, and police? Existing local government agencies (County or special districts) already cover those services and have for 80 years already.

The plaintiffs in $500 thousand lawsuit may know how to count their billable hours, but they all do not seem to know that four votes on the council is twice as many votes as their two.
Districts guarantee nothing about decisions of the future city council.

MCA has run out of excuses on their deliberate choice to hide their taxation scheme by choosing to do no outreach so the public understands.http://www.yourdictionary.com/outreach
At City Hall, the recollection is different. Nina Johnson, assistant city administrator, said City Hall insisted that a business plan be in place before Byrne and the MCA began circulating petitions among the 600 affected businesses to secure their needed approval.
“There’s a difference between circulating petitions and doing outreach,” Johnson said. “Outreach you can do at any time.”
