The L.A. Times editorial board, in a slap to the mayor and City Council, recommends a no vote on Measure B:
Set aside, for a moment, the secretive and rushed process to get the March 3 solar power charter amendment commonly known as Measure B on the ballot, the disingenuous campaign for it and the outrageous attempts to make voters equate this measure with the city's entire solar energy program. The question The Times sought to answer in the weeks it has examined the measure was whether, if passed, it would leave Los Angeles and its residents better off than they would be without it.
We conclude that it would not, and that it would in fact undermine both the city's solar energy efforts and its political oversight and accountability.
The Daily News took a similar stance in its earlier editorial opposed to B: Yes to solar, no to this proposal. The DN also has now endorsed Carmen Trutanich for City Attorney, Nick Patsaouras for Controller and David Vahedi in the 5th council district.
