Well Vito, a school district filing a negative certification isn't a national news type of story, especially since they can get back to positive by making a few cuts or budget adjustments. Now, if a district was taken over by the state, such as I think Inglewood Unified was, than the bigger newspapers might have more interest in the story.

You are so right. I still cannot figure out how the incumb ents got back in. Perhaps someone else has an idea other than the voters are stupid.

Here is a local story that made the LA Times. I think some foreign citizens are so used to politicians being crooks, that they reelect them anyway. This is about Chang being reelected in Hacienda Heights. It is OK that he stuffs his pockets. Beyond belief. http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-hacienda-school-board-reelected-20131106,0,5771723.story#axzz2juwcIJEg

There is rarely a true, transparent, genuine, and sincere politician. Most of these individuals are in it for their own benefits and perks. It's sad.
