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.

To The Editor: I am writing to announce my support for Maria Gutzeit and Diane Trautman for City Council.

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.
To the Editor: Maria Gutzeit is one of the candidates running for City Council. This is an opportunity for the city to really help itself. I've watched her public career for the past five or so years and have to share what I've seen. Remember when the Newhall County Water District board meetings were reported by The Signal as notorious affairs with very little being accomplished? Maria was elected to the board and things changed. ...
I wholeheartedly endorse Diane for City Council. I have never met anyone who does the homework necessary to make important decisions like Diane. She reads background material and actually listens to perspectives of those who will be impacted by her decisions.

Bob Comer writes in The Signal that he will vote for Democrat Lee Rogers if Rogers will pledge to live under the Obamacare exchanges like the rest of us, since Republican Buck McKeon is not doing that and even though Comer himself is a staunch Republican ("Abiding by the laws they make," Nov. 6).
I began my collegiate career at College of the Canyons in the early 1980s and, even back then, Canyons was an excellent community college - and that was before Dianne Van Hook began calling the shots there.
In response to Cheryl Lagrasta's article, I would like to explain how difficult it is to learn a second language - but it can be done.

Jonathan Kraut's thoughtful column of Nov. 5 ("District vs. at-large voting") brings up an issue of how we elect our City Council. We really should consider it.
