Redondo revenge Dear ER: Congratulations Redondo Beach You just messed up again by voting down the fun.

The schools’ year Dear ER: Now that we do not have to worry about oil drilling in Hermosa Beach, we need to focus on our schools. Beautiful vistas are not the only draw for Hermosa Beach.

Be gone! Dear ER: There’s something seriously wrong when an $18 billion corporation spends over $400,000 to flood our city with propaganda, TV ads, robo calls, etc. AES hijacked the citizen’s initiative process, convincing a short-term Redondo Beach resident to submit this initiative, now known as Measure B, on their behalf.
