Strickland is the one

I just read that State Senate candidate Tony Strickland received the endorsement of the Ventura Chamber of Commerce. The article included the California Chamber ratings for both Strickland and his opponent, Hannah-Beth Jackson. During their final year in the legislature, Strickland received a 100 percent rating from the chamber and Jackson had an abysmal 6.67 percent. At a time when local businesses struggle to survive and keep people employed, how can we afford to elect someone with such a poor record of supporting local businesses? We need someone who will put our state back on the right track and ...

If he were wearing a dress...

Regarding "Teenager with gun removed from bus" (Oct. 2) by Melissa Gasca, Staff Writer: I don't know why it bothered me, but I feel compelled to ask why Ms. Gasca felt the father's attire (red 7-11 shirt and jeans) was important or necessary for this story?

Well, where is she?

I have one question for John McCain: If Sarah Palin is "absolutely ready," as you claim, to be vice president or president right now, then why has she been hiding from American voters?

Benz neighborhood part of problem and solution

I read yet another article in The Signal about the "Benz neighborhood" and how the traffic problems have "pitted neighbors against each other."

The SCV Food Pantry needs your help

As the executive director of the Santa Clarita Valley Food Pantry, we've seen many more families hurting this year than ever before - local families struggling to put food on the table and senior citizens forced to make the decision whether to purchase their prescribed medications or food they need each month.

PAID CANDIDATE ENDORSEMENT LETTER:Support for Gloria Mercado Fortine

On April 8, citizens of Santa Clarita will have the opportunity to elect Gloria Mercado Fortine to our city council. I have known Gloria and members of her family for over 40 years. In my opinion, she is the exact type of person our city needs at this time!

PAID CANDIDATE ENDORSEMENT LETTER: Marsha McLean, Always Available to Citizens

Unlike many cities in California, Santa Clarita is in great shape with a balanced budget and a 17% reserve. We maintain a reserve to be used in emergencies such as earthquake or fire. I believe in an open, transparent government, I believe in integrity and respect for our citizens. I practice those beliefs every day.

‘Noah’ — it’s just a movie

People (of SCV and others), get over it. "Noah" is a film. A Hollywood film.

Why red-light cameras here?

It seems to me that if any city would need to have red-light cameras set up, it would be Los Angeles.

Don’t be taken in by Iran’s false diplomacy

Iran is a theocracy, which means it is led by its religious leaders. The Iranian people are a religious people.

We need more transparency in our elections

So sad to see another state legislator, Leland Yee, accused of criminal political corruption.

PAID CANDIDATE ENDORSEMENT LETTER: The Need for New Blood on the City Council

To clear up any confusion, let me began by saying that I personally paid for this letter of endorsement to be published. It is a somewhat unusual policy to have to pay for an opinion letter, so I want the readers to know that it was I who paid for the opinion, and not the other way around.

Defining difference

When a conservative sees a product or service he likes overseas, he often thinks, "Someone needs to start a business and bring that to my area. Hey, maybe I could start it myself!"

Consumers, take charge of the billboard issue

I fail to see what all the billboard hullabaloo is about. It's obvious these vast slabs of advertising are a visual blight.

Obamacare: biggest fiasco since Prohibition

In Tuesday's Democratic Voices column in The Signal ("The game-changer for Democrats"), Kevin Buck wrote another of his signature Dem/socialist rah-rah pieces cheering all things leftist, booing all things conservative and Republican, and essentially pinning his arguments on Obamacare, claiming "millions of Americans now have access to quality, low-cost insurance and health care for the first time in their lives."

Last week the House of Representatives passed the ENFORCE the Law Act of 2014 (H.R. 4138), a simple measure by Congressman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., that would enable members of Congress to sue the Executive Branch in federal court when it disregards or flagrantly violates the U.S. Constitution.

Looking for answers at tonight’s City Council meeting

Tonight is the third and probably last meeting to discuss the electronic billboard issue at Santa Clarita City Hall at 6.p.m. The first two meetings lasted until around midnight with an overwhelming number of attendees (in the hundreds) voicing opposition.

Complications, questions linger in billboard issue

The March 20 Signal article "SCV billboard proposal hits a snag" points out still another reason not to proceed with the ill-advised plan to erect digital billboards on the Interstate 5 freeway and Highway 14: a change of zoning would be necessary.
