1. A new LAPD chief.
2. A ban on memorializing public figures who have been convicted of crimes. This would eliminate former Supervisor Pete Schabarums name on a south-county park and Richard Alatorres memorial by the MTA Building.
3. An LAPD civilian review board.
4. A district attorney to be appointed by the local state appeal court instead of elected at large. Can anyone remember the last time voters elected a really good, tough D.A.?
5. A restructured, totally independent public health-care agency to run the countys hospitals and clinics.
6. A $100 million city housing trust fund with a high-level appointed commission to oversee it.
7. Three-term limits for the county Board of Supervisors and City Council. Supervisors serve far too long; council members need more time in office.
8. At least one new trade-tech college to focus on the high-technology training demanded by the 21st centurys industries.
9. A much smaller school-district meritocracy to replace the current bureaucracy.
10. A commitment to establish a system of new parks and green space, from the mountains to the sea.
