SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

Things you’ve never heard someone say, “We need to make things less complicated and cheaper. Let’s hire a lawyer.”
The letter published in the Sept. 7-13 edition of the San Clemente Times by lawyer and pro-district election shill Brad Malamud is a perfect fit. There’s no evidence provided for changing at-large voting except you would get to vote for someone who is your neighbor. What’s so great about that?
The last lawyer we had on City Council was a neighbor of mine in Rancho San Clemente. He wanted to pave over Open Space in our own neighborhood. Fortunately, we had Councilmembers from other parts of the city who thought that was a lousy idea. Proof that the current system works just fine.
