Trautman shows leadership

To The Editor:

Beyond the fray of "hit" mailers and the illegally funded endorsements backed by big-developer money, there is a candidate who has quietly pressed on with the important issues that matter to all of us. That candidate is Diane Trautman.

May 31, 2008 | By David Gauny, Chairman, Smart Growth SCV Valencia | Letters to the Editor

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.

May 28, 2008 | By Robin Clough and Gene Dorio, M.D. Santa Clarita | Letters to the Editor


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:

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."

Ballot language needs to change

An article in The Signal July 3, 2014, quoted the proposed ballot language for the billboard referendum on November's ballot: "Shall Ordinance No. 14-02 adopting a Development Agreement with Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) for the removal of 62 advertisement structures, within the city, by Metro or any other means, and construction and operation of three digital billboards, adjacent to Interstate 5 and State Route 14 freeways, and the dedication to the city of revenue received from digital billboards, which creates an ongoing revenue stream, be adopted?"

Let’s tap the Columbia River

Recently I was privileged to hear a presentation on the water crisis in our state, and also our problems here in Santa Clarita, regarding a shortage of water and an over-abundance of salt in our discharge into the Santa Clara River.

HOAs can and are getting on board with drought restrictions

"Following the water rules" (Thursday's Signal) expresses a legitimate concern of SCV HOA residents - they are concerned about penalties for letting their lawns go brown as they cut back water use - landscaping accounts for some 60 percent of residential water use - because associations have rules about care and upkeep of homes, landscape and lawns.

Legalize marijuana — but with restrictions

There is no doubt that the legalization of marijuana is gaining favor throughout the country, and I have to say that I am for it - but with some very strong reservations.

Let’s derail the train and desalinate ocean water
