Vote ‘No’ on Measure S

Folks, be aware that Measure S is a backroom deal between the city politicians and the billboard consultants, not the resident voters in Santa Clarita. The proposed digital freeway signs are very large, two-sided, bright and more appropriate for Las Veg as.

The Signal’s bizarre argument for Measure S

I find The Signal's editorial in support of Measure S (Oct. 19, "Vote 'yes' on Measure S") to be both bizarre and somewhat unintelligible.

‘Yes’ on S for prosperous future

I strongly encourage all Santa Clarita residents to vote yes on Measure S.

We’ll be sorry if Measure S passes

I'm a recent transplant into the Santa Clarita Valley from northeast Pennsylvania.

‘Yes’ on Measure for a sure deal

I've heard and read the arguments of the yes and no sides on Measure S.

Vote ‘no’ on S and preserve SCV beauty

Please vote no on S so that our lovely rural corridors on the 5 and 14 freeways don't turn into Long Beach and L.A.-like corridors of massive lit commercials.

‘Yes’ on S — remove the billboards

I have lived in the Santa Clarita Valley for over 35 years and I have always considered the signs along the Soledad Canyon Road and Railroad Avenue corridors an eyesore and a blight on the community.

Signal Measure S editorial failed to convince

It was a delight to have opposing views side by side on the same page Oct. 19: The Sunday Signal's Editorial Board view, "Vote 'yes' on Measure S," and William L. Blowers' "Why I'm voting 'no' on S."

Measure S a good deal for Santa Clarita

Santa Clarita is surrounded by gorgeous open spaces and is one of the most beautiful cities in California.

S should be passed

I would like to express my opinion on this important matter, Measure S.

Billboard questions

Very interesting comments from both Councilmen Bob Kellar and TimBen Boydston. And a little if not a lot of political spin from both. They sure like to throw numbers around.

Billboard arguments

I found it interesting that Councilman Kellar mentioned Councilman Boydston quite a few times in his argument in favor of Measure S. It's almost as if his opinion is an attack on another councilman rather than providing reasons to convince the voting public that the "deal" is a good one.

On intolerance

Interesting how Charlie Vignola reveals his own intolerance when in his commentary "None Dare Call It Bigotry," [10/14] he clearly verbalizes his own bigotry toward those with religious convictions. By Webster's definition, which he quotes, bigotry is intolerance with hatred. I happen to hold to those "ancient religious" ideals he mentions that God spelled out in both the Old and New Testaments in the Bible. I do so without hatred. Furthermore, tolerance speaks more of endurance than it does affirmation. But that's not what is so inflammatory about Vignola's argument.

Best of luck on Friday

Last year, during the CIF-Southern Section Northern Division semifinal playoff game, Valencia safety Jay Jay Wilson hit Saugus receiver Timmy Kahovec hard and was ejected from the game. While Vikings fans remain steadfast that it was a clean hit and Centurion fans remain resolute that it was targeting, it is important to remember that we are all friends and neighbors. With the rematch coming up on Friday (10/17), I hope we can put last year behind us and go into this game rooting for our respective teams with no hard feelings.

Vote No on S

Our fair city of Santa Clarita negotiated a deal and passed an ordinance (3-1-a), with little to no public input, to construct three (3) huge, 2-faced, electronic billboards on our beautiful 5 and 14 freeways, in exchange for forcefully taking 40 billboards away from their longtime owners on Railroad - for unjust compensation. Only the honorable TimBen Boydston voted no. In the weeks preceding the hurried vote, SCV residents vocalized our opposition to the ordinance in chambers.
