The secession issue is one that will continue beyond the November elections. In a less confrontational venue, Los Angeles residents, businesses, elected officials and policy makers will explore its impact on local government, services, and communities. We must ask: What are the ramifications of the voting results? Where do we go from here? Will there be other secession efforts?
