Good that they repealed the ordinance restricting where you can go. But it is even more important to outlaw their local restrictions on where you can live. Yes, I understand that court challenge is pending.

Lawyers representing Ontario have participated “in informal discussions with the plaintiff’s counsel,” (City Attorney John) Brown said. The purpose of the discussions is “to see what they wish to achieve.”

For the time being, “we anticipate we will be defending (the lawsuit) into the immediate future,” Brown said.

You really need to go there, Counselor Brown? I assume you have had to review SOME constitutional law in your esteemed career, as well as your basic training. What we want to “achieve” is constitutional parity with other citizens. What’s so hard to figure out?

Good that they are looking seriously at this, bad that they are only taking steps to overturn part of it instead of all of it.

I sent the reporter an email asking her about access to the election polls in Pomona to change the law. If you limit where people can live, you there for limit votes.
