Implores OPUSD schools to open

I appreciate the unprecedented burden that Oak Park Unified School District leaders have been tasked with. Leading a school district during a global pandemic is challenging in so many ways. I trust that our students’ best interest is always top of mind. I am concerned about the start date of Jan. 5, 2021, for DK-5 grade students that has been […]

Urging LVUSD to open as well

Los Angeles County has begun to consider applications for in-person instruction for students in kindergarten through second grade. While any move toward safe school reopening is positive, particularly in districts like LVUSD with extremely low COVID rates, I take issue with the lack of attention paid to the needs of high school students. There seems to be an underlying assumption […]

Says Westlake lights are a help

I disagree with Trisha Abadi about the effectiveness of the flashing crosswalk lights. I have walked in the First Neighborhood many years, which included crossing Lindero Canyon and Lakeview Canyon before the crossing lights were installed. I find that cars certainly do stop for the flashing lights and I’m grateful to have them now. Gail HobmannWestlake Village

Backs Weintraub in Calabasas

I am writing to support the re-election of Mayor Alicia Weintraub for City Council. I have had the privilege of working with Mayor Weintraub on the inaugural Mayor’s Youth Council. Mayor Weintraub had a vision to give young adults a voice in real-life issues challenging our city. She spent many hours discussing and creating a strategic action plan to rally […]

Bring back Washburn

I have known Dennis Washburn since 1973, and even that far back he had a comprehensive vision for a future city of Calabasas. In 1991, he, with other founders, made the city a reality, fulfilling a vision of safe public spaces, environmental protection and controlled development. Dennis became our first mayor and worked tirelessly to improve our city until he […]

Likes Peter Kraut for city council

Vote for Peter Kraut for Calabasas City Council. I watched three Calabasas City Council candidate forums and it has never been clearer that Peter Kraut is who Calabasas needs on the City Council to become the modern city it needs to be. He was prepared and outlined his plans and ideas that on day one will improve Calabasas. Among his […]

Kraut smart on development

West Village at Calabasas is back. In July 2019, the Calabasas Planning Commission voted to deny approval of the The West Village at Calabasas. That is where the story poles are at the intersection of Agoura and Las Virgenes roads. The developer, New Home Company, has basically returned with the same project. Therefore, the story poles haven’t changed because the […]

Dr. Susan has skills to help cure Calabasas

In these troubling times with so many challenges being thrown at us, we need representatives on the City Council who are more than one dimensional and who can focus on multiple issues and tasks at one time. Susan Fredericks-Ploussard is that person. I have seen so many people hyper-focused on planning and development issues and those issues alone. To be […]

Northrup, yes

I’ve had the distinct honor and pleasure to have served with Linda Northrup on the planning commission. On the commission, I was most impressed with her leadership skills and her passion about making our city a better place for all to live, work and play. This dedication propelled her to City Council, in which her leadership skills soared and her […]

Likes team Weber-Northrup

Since its founding, the key issue for Agoura Hills has been building and expanding the quality of life for its residents. That theme is translated through such actions as preserving open space, environmental stewardship, public safety, cultural initiatives, sensible development and redevelopment, support for our schools and more. It is reflected in many ways, including our safe and secure city’s […]
