Stanton today asks taxpayers to raise tax

Stanton should just merge with Garden Grove or Anaheim.  Stanton is an unnecessary city government. Fun fact:  Stanton became a city for the first time in 1911 to thwart a plan by Anaheim to build a sewer farm.  It disincorporated in 1924 to lower taxes for residents.  It became a city again in 1956 for no apparent reason, but I imagine it was because residents were jealous of Garden Grove which incorporated that same year.  Stanton is approximately three square miles — far too small to be a city.
