Everyone Wants Vernon?

New, 23 comments

Following talk of annexing Vernon, now Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael Antonovich has "contacted the City of Commerce about the possibility of it annexing Vernon, in large part because he said he wants to prevent a similar move by the city of Los Angeles," reports the LA Times. Antonovich says he fears "businesses would leave L.A. County," and tells the Times: “I know L.A. is very anxious, they’re trying to latch on to any way of pumping money into their treasury. But they have a poor record in dealing with business because of their excessive taxes and regulations.” [LAT]
