Editorial Blasts Proposed L.A. City Health Department
A Los Angeles Daily News editorial questions whether Los Angeles city officials should be entrusted "with something as vital as the community's health," given the city's financial straits. Â The AIDS Healthcare Foundation has begun collecting signatures to place a measure on the 2014 city ballot to create a Los Angeles city health department. The editorial adds, "In addition to the concern that an L.A. city health agency would duplicate county efforts, residents should worry about where we'd get the estimated $200 million a year to pay for it."
