Would secession save money in taxes? My guess is that it wouldn't, because the newly independent entity would just love to spend some money on local projects.

Nobody knows in advance what the tax situation would be, but it's hard to believe it would be any worse, and at least our taxes would be spent where we live. The examples of such independent cities as Burbank and Glendale are encouraging - they have clean streets, good police and fire protection and much better schools than the LAUSD. At any rate, I would even be willing to pay more for a voice in my local government. Right now I'm just a helpless serf on the LA downtown plantation.

It will probably not save anything, but there would be more money to line the pockets of closer politicians.
