Santa Monica overwhelmingly preferred one candidate, Malibu overwhelmingly preferred a different candidate. Santa Monica’s candidate got the job.
Why? Because 86 percent of the voters live in Santa Monica. If 86 percent of the voters lived in Malibu, it’d be Keith being sworn in next week.
And worse still, even if every registered voter in Malibu had voted for Keith and only Keith (all possible Malibu votes going to Keith and no Malibu votes going to other candidates), Keith would still have lost with 25 percent fewer votes than Maria.
It’s what ensures that our School Board members remember the will of the people. That they make our priorities their priorities. That they make our vision their vision and our problems their problems.
Imagine a world in which your TV is hooked to your neighbor’s remote control. You watch what they want to watch when they want to watch it. You can’t watch the shows you want unless they want to watch them too. Every day. Forever. That’s Malibu in SMMUSD.
