Los Angeles Secession

Wednesday, September 4th, 2002

The LA United campaign is in a good position to defeat proposals to allow both the San Fernando Valley and Hollywood to secede. Though the debate still has a long way to go to truly be defined, support for secession lacks the depth and breadth to succeed at this point. Even more encouraging is that support for secession tends to erode as voters are introduced to information on both sides of the debate, with the strongest messages against secession focusing on the economic uncertainties of breaking up the city.
