Why did you think that?
La Jolla is nice, expensive, conservative territory.
I have never thought of La Jolla as “conservative”, republican by about half maybe, but not conservative, it is a weird part of town, and was always my least favorite area, and customers.
“According to voter data, La Jolla,CA votes 49.85% Republican.” http://www.homefacts.com/politics/California/San-Diego-County/La-Jolla.html
Like all of California these days, you do not need to invest in anything new to get something great at a bargain price. Secondly, with the Democrats in power you really have to ask yourself why you'd throw your money away!
