We in Westchester, Playa Del Rey, and other disenfranchised areas of Mike Bonin’s Council District 11 would like to thank Manhattan Beach for the help in starting to reverse the “traffic-diet” that was dictated by Mike Bonin without proper studies and community input.  If the councilman did any studies it was with archaic methods and not the current methods used by Manhattan Beach.    In addition to not seeking the input of Manhattan Beach, Bonin did not consult with the many businesses or residents here in District 11.  We cannot find evidence of mass communication or meetings where an up or down vote was taken. Bonin failed in facilitating democratic process due to his egocentric stance that everyone is like him and chooses the bicycle as a main source of transportation.  He has turned a blind eye to those who cannot ride a bicycle:  mothers taking children to school, seniors, those without the physical capacity to ride, people with long commutes,  and business professionals who need their vehicles for work and transporting sales materials, tools, etc.  We stand in solidarity with those of you who now have a longer commute and a lower quality of life due to spending more of it on the road.  Recall of Mr. Bonin is being considered and researched due to ignoring the communities in District 11.  Thank you again Manhattan Beach for providing leadership and consideration for all members of our communities.
