It seems like the issue isn't whether or not A CONTRACT should be signed, but whether or not THIS contract should be signed. Considering the seriousness of the concerns, I'm glad the County Supervisors did not approve it. But why did the Chumash need to take such a hard-line stance by refusing to negotiate? Is there no room for middle ground, a negotiated agreement that would be amenable to all sides?

I'm curious about the statement that UCSB has opposed the cityhood incorporation of Isla Vista: "such an option was opposed by the UCSB administration, which, in alliance with the county, had created the pressure-cooker community." I don't necessarily dispute it, but I wonder exactly what the University has done. Can you elaborate on UCSB's position or cite examples of their actions?

If you want to go car-free in LA, why not take the train? Union Station is serviced by the Metro (Red, Gold, & Purple lines) and there are other public transportation options. It's also possible to take a bike on Amtrak and get around LA on two wheels.

Like other Goletans, I associate Aceves with a full-steam-ahead development agenda. He's been pro-growth-at-any-cost and I don't believe he has done a good job at protecting the interests of the city or its residents.

Unions serve a purpose in protecting workers' rights. The entire New-Press debacle clearly illustrates the importance of a union. Without one, the management there would run all over its employees with total disregard of their rights.
