Get out and vote

I must say the April Fools’ headline article (“Elected for life,” April 1) certainly should have jolted the community into “high alarm mode.”

Even though the article was a joke appropriate to the date, I certainly hope it will make the people of Santa Clarita stop and think about how important their vote is in the upcoming City Council election.

Our government, from local to national and all levels in between, has its element of unethical behavior. Though one would hope this article’s issues would never come about, it is scary to think that most people do not keep track of what is going on in city councils or state and federal legislatures. Then they wonder how “what is” could have ever happened.

Please let this be the largest turnout ever for a City Council election in Santa Clarita. Whether you are still in favor of the incumbents or really would like to see a change, make your voice heard.

Encourage everyone you know to be out there on election day and vote. At least then we will be able to say the vote reflected the community (and not how apathetic we all have become).

My own opinion: We need a change. Status quo never brings in new ideas.
