The Santa Monica Daily Press asks:
"Do you support rate increases on your utility bills to restore fund balances to healthy levels? How much are you willing to pay?"
No. This is a typical bumbling bureaucrat and power-seeking political play, trying to take advantage of the stupidity and mathematical incompetence of boobus santamonicus.
There is NO necessity to increase rates because, generally, rates are a percentage. A given percentage yields MORE when the base increases. Simple, but obviously the rulers of the fascist mini-state of Santa Monica know that even that simple concept is too much for Santa Monica simpletons to understand.
It's similar to the sales tax rate increase and the "service" tip expectation rate increase scams that most of the sheeple have accepted.
(In case you don't understand, the "rationale" for these increases is that because prices, expenses, living costs, etc., are increasing, that the PERCENTAGE also has to increase, ignoring the fact that the original percentages will yield more because they are calculated on those same prices, expenses, living costs, etc.)
