  • S*I*G*H — Jim Newton at the Times repeated the misinformation that the League of Cities appoints the “city” members to the Metro Board. He’d have known it is actually the L.A. County City Selection Commitee if he’d read coverage of the issue here. I’ve e-mailed him about the mistake. This common mis-understanding is partly because to draw a quroum that Committee meetings often piggyback on meetings of the League.  But kudos for Newton giving us a head’s up the showdown meeting of the Committee is March 7th!
