  1. I live in Fontana, and I had no idea they were even considering this. I’m not surprised, though. I have no idea who voted for the current mayor/city council, but I didn’t. I voted, of course, but I steered clear of these idiots. Since they were elected, our city has been going downhill. The school system is a mess, roads and sidewalks are falling apart, city services are nearly non-existent, and now this. I sincerely hope those who voted for them see the error of their ways and make sure they are not re-elected.
