WASHINGTON, D.C. - Rep. Howard P. "Buck" McKeon (R-Santa Clarita), member of the House Health Care Solutions Group, today issued the following statement after Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid announced a "compromise," which included a public option:
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.

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.
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.
