This is a great example of greed on behalf of the Supervisors. Just try it: you call a supervisor not in your district, and they shuffle you over to your disrict supervisor: THEY ARE ALREADY BEHAVING AS IF THEY CONFORM TO DISTRICT WIDE REPRESENTATION. So what incentive to keep the status quo? An easy footstep to higher office, greater name recognition, and definitely much more insular dealings....be careful of this group...the city of Bell has nothing on them compared to the greed of power.

You sure nailed the general consensus about our Supervisors.
The elections are very much in the "Meg Whitman" style of politicking.
