Experience is what you get when you don’t.” For decades now, San Diegans unschooled in reading the fine print have lost hundreds of millions of dollars to painful experience: the public […]

Homeowners and Residents Across the State Protest SB10

Eradicating pandemics one signature at a time – the Recall Reopening
