If enacted, the new alcohol ordinance has the potential to stay and, possibly, reduce the number of liquor stores in zip codes 93550 and 93552. This is important because of the correlation between alcohol outlet density and the high rates of violent crime in both of these zip codes. Among other things, it will ban the sale of alco-pops, malt beverages with very high alcohol content packaged in a manner to attract youth consumption.

AB 525 makes it more difficult for major chains to unfairly terminate their franchise operators. The measure will update the current vague and one-sided law to close loopholes and prohibit a corporation from closing a franchise business unless there has been a substantial violation of the contract, the law or local regulations. It also allows franchisees to keep the equity they invested in the event of termination and sell the business to a qualified new owner.

For me, a proud 2006 graduate of Vasquez High School and K-12 attendee of the Acton-Agua Dulce Unified School District, this day was combination of nostalgia and the surreal experience of setting foot on something we never thought would happen.
