Dennis Koontz and I live in Tesoro. We both served on city of Santa Clarita's formation committee 23 years ago. I was a parks commissioner, and Dennis was a city councilman. We know firsthand the advantages of being in the city. We encourage our neighbors to help us annex into the city where we drive, shop, work and play.
