Council needs new blood

There are two openings on the City Council. It is time to fill Bob Kellar's opening with a qualified candidate such as Diane Trautman.

A testament to Trautman

May 29, 2008 | By Shirley Buchignani Saugus | Letters to the Editor


Trautman speaks for seniors

To The Editor:

The city of Santa Clarita has evolved over the past two decades with worthy expansion and development. As we move toward the future, though, the viability of our infrastructure will depend on those who recognize balance between our social and economic needs. Until now, the needs of our senior population have largely been ignored.

They should know better

To The Editor:

It seems "fashionable" for some members of Santa Clarita's City Council to claim stupidity when they get caught with their hand in the cookie jar. It appears as though all a person has to say when they get caught is: "I'm sorry, I didn't know the law," or "I may have violated state law."

Kellar's above reproach

The Signal's recent reporting of Mayor Bob Kellar's omissions on state disclosure forms is unnecessarily slanted to suggest these omissions are nefarious, versus mistakes or oversights.

A vote for Trautman

To The Editor:

Your vote on April 8, for the City Council election is important. It is the opportunity to support leaders who carry your vision, share your values, reflect your ideas and thoughts about the needs of the city of Santa Clarita, and demonstrate a willingness to listen to constituents.

Squirming under scrutiny

To The Editor:

After reading recent Signal articles about our esteemed city councilman Bob Kellar (regarding Form 700 income disclosure) and Frank Ferry (regarding campaign mailers for Bob Keller and Laurie Ender), I am forced to come to one of two possible conclusions:

Diane Trautman is my choice for City Council.

Mayo expansion as bad as Las Lomas

To The Editor:

What struck me while reading a recent article about Las Lomas was a quote from our own Lisa Hardy. Lisa is one of many who "rightfully" oppose this proposed development. Her quote in the article was, "It is so grossly incompatible with its surroundings, it violates every principle of urban planning."

I am writing in support of Laurie Ender for City Council. The citizens of Santa Clarita will benefit greatly by electing Laurie Ender to the City Council on April 8.

Yacht tax?

To The Editor:

:In Ms. Wright's letter ("Republicans: Foes of Education," March 14, 2008) she insinuates that the Hart School District budget deficit was caused by the Republicans' reluctance to do away with the so-called "Yacht Tax." It would be best to know exactly what this tax really is.

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.

Electronic billboard rush to judgment

In the "Our View" editorial on Sunday, March 30, The Signal editorial board questioned the city's reason for rushing for a final vote on the electronic billboard issue.

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."

Can you say Vladimir?

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.

Questions remain in Flight 370 saga

Now that the saga of Flight 370 is coming to a close, we have to ask ourselves some serious questions.

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.
