Calabasas politics got unnecessarily ugly, hostile

Regardless of the results of the election of March 4, our lovely community has lost something. The toxic byproduct of rumors, vilifications and lies which have poured forth from some of the city council contenders have only succeeded in, at least temporarily, drawing our town down to their much lower level.
