To The Editor: In recent weeks, there has been a wealth of opinion regarding the candidates for the upcoming Santa Clarita City Council election. Many prominent figures from the community have lent their endorsement, and much has been offered in the defense of one candidate or another.
To The Editor: Having been intensely involved in City Hall politics for the past two years, I have witnessed two candidates emerge as the top choices in next Tuesdayâ€TMs election: Bob Kellar and Diane Trautman.
To The Editor: Do you want City Council candidates who have serious conflicts of interest or who get money from dubious sources known to misrepresent opponents with hit mailers? Obviously not. You do want council members who work hard, are accessible, have strong experience, are competent, and most of all, have integrity.
To The Editor: To Bob Kellar: you want us to vote for you, but you can't follow the printed instructions! Oh, those instructions must be for everyone else, not you.
To The Editor: Although I live in the unincorporated county area of the valley and cannot cast my vote in the City of Santa Clarita elections, I believe that voting is an effective tool to effect change and have a voice. I urge all residents to take a few minutes out of their day to vote for their candidate of choice. I feel each of the candidates has strong traits, however, I'm compelled to express my personal involvement with Diane Trautman.
To The Editor: I'm voting for Laurie Ender for City Council because of her commitment to the future of the city of Santa Clarita and to improving our quality of life here.
To The Editor: Maria Gutzeit is my choice. She has demonstrated she can get things done. She made roads safer by working with the county to widen them.
To The Editor: I am excited that our valley has such a great choice for a new City Council member as we have in Maria Gutzeit.
To The Editor: I am writing to announce my support for Maria Gutzeit and Diane Trautman for City Council.
To The Editor: I would like to voice my strong support of Diane Trautman for the position of City Council member. I have worked with Diane on the Arts Advisory Committee. I have seen a determined, creative problem-solver who intelligently guides issues toward a positive outcome.
To The Editor: I am supporting Maria Gutzeit in the race for City Council as I believe she truly understands the issues and concerns of the residents of this city and has an impeccable track record for getting the job done.
To The Editor: We, the friends of Diane Trautman listed below, support Diane for City Council because she knows what needs to be done to address our top priorities - including traffic congestion and public safety.
To The Editor: I would like to encourage Santa Clarita citizens to cast their votes for Diane Trautman for City Council.|
To The Editor: We are writing to express our most profound appreciation to our Mayor, Mr. Bob Kellar.
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.
As is usual in his columns, Kevin Buck took some big liberties with the truth in his column "It's been a long and winding road" (April 16), in which he lauded Democrats for everything good in this country while blaming Republicans for everything bad.
Kim Jong-Un is the current leader of North Korea, and I believe whenever he has enough nuclear power to reach mainland America he shall do so.
A column by Kevin Bayona published earlier this month tells us we should not be ashamed of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
I just wanted to belatedly thank the Santa Clarita City Council for continuing the great tradition of honoring our country and its soldiers by placing flags along Lyons Avenue.
I was pleased to see your coverage on the National Parks Service's recommendations on the National Recreation Area.
On Friday, April 12, schools in Valencia were closed. Why? They seem to be closed much too often.
I have been reading as well as watching news broadcasts about the many hikers who have been lost recently.
The gun control debate in Washington has turned into a sad Congressional joke but a great argument for term limits.
The Left is shocked - shocked! - that the Koch brothers use their own money to sway public opinion.
Climate scientists have recently concluded that man-made emissions are not significant enough to have a noticeable effect on the climate. When humans billow billions of tons of CO2 into the atmosphere, it doesn't change the climate.
In the current national debate over efforts to redefine the historic institution of marriage, some key concerns have hardly been mentioned.
Regarding The Signal's Letter to the Editor "Driving in Santa Clarita: Some rules of the road" (March 23, 2013):
Exclusionary arguments by gay marriage advocates (i.e., against polygamy, marrying relatives, marrying oneself, marrying underage, etc.) make the traditional marriage case for their opponents: i.e., that the social institution of marriage involves a lot more than simply "marry whomever you love."
Although I am not a churchgoer, I love reading the columns every Sunday titled "Ethically Speaking" by Grace Baptist Church Senior Pastor David Hegg. Indeed, his columns make me think and feel good about myself.
On March 3, The Signal published the editorial "Conference center: Don't give up yet." I was delighted to read this article and I think the words were needed to offset the idea that the cost of the land and construction would keep the conference center from being built.
