As election day approaches, I find the need to inform the Castaic community, which I love so dearly, as to what I think is best for the Castaic Union School District. I have served on the Castaic school board for the past eight years and am presently honored to be president as I was in 2007. I also served on the Castaic Town Council from 2001 through 2008. A council member cannot serve more than two consecutive terms and that is the reason I am no longer serving in that capacity.
This is an alert to all voters of the Newhall County Water District. Kathryn Colley is not, in my opinion, a viable candidate for director on the district board. She has shown no interest in the water district prior to this election and still does not attend any meetings, even during the campaign. She also did not show up for a candidate forum.

I've been watching and waiting for the past decade as the William S. Hart Union High School District failed time and again to deliver on its promise to build a much-needed high school in Castaic. This Nov. 3, we have an opportunity to end the waiting by electing
The election for the William S. Hart Union High School District board is important. While not the largest operating budget in the Santa Clarita Valley anymore, the Hart district is the largest employer (excepting Six Flags Magic Mountain during the summer season) for the valley.
First Place A velvet pitch-black coat gleaming with red spiders scattered all down the front, back and arms. An elegant but creepy top hat with stocky black roses sticking out the side, and rough black tulle wrapped around and draping down the beautiful hat. A silky black satin dress that laces up the front with a sparkling red ribbon. Sounds cool right? Well I'm glad you think so because that is what I'm going to ...
Hello, Santa Clarita Valley! Welcome to The-Signal.com's Daybreak, your point of entry for the day, and a quick journey through the past, present and future. Let the adventure begin:
Sometimes you've just got to go with the candidates that you know best, and that is why I am voting Brian Koegle for College of the Canyons' governing board and Joe Messina for the William S. Hart Union High School District board. I understand what Koegle and Messina bring to the prospective offices they are running for.
I freely choose to put my political opinions out among the public, so I accept I will elicit a fair share of protest for holding said opinions.
Let me introduce myself, what I stand for and why I am running again for a seat on the Castaic Union School District Board of Trustees.
I would like to share what a pleasure and honor it has been to work alongside both Joan MacGregor and Suzan Solomon.
I have had the opportunity and privilege to serve with and sit beside Joan MacGregor on the College of the Canyons Board of Trustees for the past 12 years.

Much of that can be attributed to the leadership of Chancellor Dianne Van Hook. But it is also due to ...
