It has succeeded in its implementation but failed in its outcomes.
If the Santa Clarita City Council goes ahead with its plan to privatize our libraries, 39 to 40 loyal and faithful part-time employees will be out of work. This is unconscionable in this time of record unemployment and jobs impossible to find.
We do not believe the city of Santa Clarita can provide better library services than Los Angeles County.
