Re "Hansen's got guts To defy Kevin Johnson" (Our Region, Aug. 20): The opposition to the "Strong Mayor" Measure L is more broadly based and diverse than Marcos Breton recognizes. It includes a growing coalition of neighborhoods, city employees and good government, including Common Cause as well as the League of Women Voters. Recently, the oldest and largest environmental organization in the nation, the Sierra Club, has decided to oppose this unjustified, high-risk and wealthy special interest backed proposal.

Of course, Councilman Steve Hansen should be commended for his recognition that Measure L is contrary to Sacramento`s diverse neighborhood centered city. Voters should reject this attempted power grab.
