HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Former mixed martial arts fighter Tito Ortiz has quit his post on the City Council of Huntington Beach, California after spending about six months in politics for the first time — and attracting harsh criticism for his anti-mask views and for filing for unemployment benefits while serving on the council.

The Fredericksburg City Council is now considering building a new school (which will cost upwards of $35 million) but council members admit that the only way to pay for it while still paying off the existing debt (which new school borrowing would increase by more than $2 million annually) is a major tax increase.

State legislators expressly excluded public servants who work for the commonwealth from their new public collective bargaining law for political subdivisions. They don’t want to have to deal with never-ending negotiations and demands for more money and benefits from state employees. And that should be an object lesson to all local jurisdictions that are considering taking lawmakers up on their offer.

Although people should always be considerate of others, including those who need to sleep, playing loud music in a downtown bar should not be treated the same as turning up the stereo full blast in a small city apartment building.
