Is it just me, or does it seem like Jim Dantona is actually running against Waste Management? I also got a robo call from The Jim Alger campaign talking about the possilble dump expansion.
Anyways, I attended a press conference for Jim Dantona last Thursday night at the gates of the Simi Valley landfill. Jim Dantona wants to inspire WM to donate land to create a world class soccer complex for all the local clubs and teams. Something along the lines of what Lancaster has built. Kind of sad we are second to Lancaster, but I digress.
Jim's plan would have WM donating the land, and the park district building the thing. The land would be a portion of the area that has been discussed or not discussed ( depending who you believe) as part of a potential expansion.
If WM does not go along with the plan, Jim Dantona said he will use any means needed including a ballot proposition to hold off any expansion.
The press conference was attended by The Daily News but The Star did not send a reporter. There was JIm, Barbra, Gene, and many soccer parents including the mythical "soccer moms".

Side note, if someone posts pretending to be you, let me know by e-mailing me and I will see what I can do. It is my belief that people should be able to discuss politics under pen names like the Founding Fathers did in things like the Federalist Papers. For that reason, I don't reveal identities, as long as you play by the rules. But if you play dirty tricks like posting under other peoples' names, all bets are off.
To all the loyal posters like Bubba and GS thanks for helping to make democracy work.
