Why no warning on water rates?

I read Tony Maniscalchi's April 4 op-ed piece, “It's a done deal: Your water rate is going up,” and I agree with every word.

But it is very easy to have an opinion after the fact and let us know we have been screwed once again. It would have been incredibly refreshing to have this opinion published before the die was cast.

Glendale Water & Power and our City Council has duped us poor uninformed citizens once again and we will just tuck our tail between our legs, complain to our friends and neighbors, and then pay the increased costs.

Poor Frank Quintero can't become the new mayor because Laura Friedman is off to South Korea. That makes the front page and the new water-rate op-ed piece is buried on A5.

Go figure.
