Who Wanted to be a Millionaire in Montebello?


Corruption in local government

This is why I'm so skeptical of the governor's plan to decentralize money and authority to local government. Not all local governments are as corrupt as Montebello or Bell, but most are very poorly overseen by the local media. That makes even lower levels of corruption (like giveaways to favored local interest groups or favored school districts) way too easy to get away with.

Better to keep the authority and money where at there's at least a chance for major media to serve as watchdog.
