A Tale of Two Cities?

A Tale of Two Cities?

There are two Whittiers. There is the Whittier of lush trees, wide and winding streets, golf courses and country clubs. Then there is the Whittier of graffiti and turf wars, where litter and blankets cover the streets; where surveillance footage captures criminals checking car doors at night and where midday shootouts happen in Uptown. Our politicians seem to live in the Whittier of yesteryear while we, the residents of District 2, live in a city that seems to be getting worse by the day.
