Their choice is Carol Kirschbaum



I have lived in Westlake Village only five years, drawn here by the wonderful surroundings. But already I have seen commercial developments whose style I believe threatens our village environment. There is no doubt that we need a thriving business community to help pay the costs of the great city services we enjoy. But as a 35year participant in city […]

Other voters are anti-Kirschbaum



In my opinion as an experienced sales guy, many of my fellow residents are being sold a bill of goods by Westlake City Council candidate Carol Kirschbaum. Don’t be fooled by the token words and a smile. Telling people that there are boat slips available at the lake when we all know that the waiting list is years long- that’s […]

Support for Ted Corwin



I’d like to take this opportunity to ask you to consider Theodore Corwin, longtime Westlake Village resident and local medical practitioner, for City Council. I’ve known Ted for more than 13 years and our families have grown and remained close during that time. I’ve never known Ted to harbor specific political aspirations. However, over the past several months he decided […]

Philippa Klessig is their choice



Voting for someone to run a city is something to be taken very seriously. Voting for someone who happens to be a friend of yours or simply a nice person is not strong or smart criteria. Voting for someone who has experience in your city’s government, who spends an enormous amount of time researching what’s best for your city and […]

Opposes Klessig on health issue



In a recent interview of Philippa Klessig in the Oct. 18 Acorn, Ms. Klessig states she often hears of her constituents’ concerns over the city not having a hospital. Her answer to that, and her direct quote from the interview, was “Maybe it is not as bad as we think. . . .Maybe we just need defibrillators.” What? Excuse me? […]

Kuperberg, Edelston good for Agoura Hills



Having served on the Agoura Hills City Council for the past two years with Dan Kuperberg and John Edelston, I can speak about them from a special perspective. With that knowledge, I enthusiastically endorse both for reelection. Mayor Dan Kuperberg is always challenging us to look forward, anticipating and planning for Agoura Hills’ future, with a great vision for our […]

Readers weigh in on LVUSD school board election



During my two years on the Las Virgenes School Board I have had the privilege of being part of a governance team totally dedicated to the well-being and success of our students. Our school district is one of the largest employers in the region, studiously manages nearly $100 million of taxpayer funds, and interfaces with three cities and two counties, […]

Feisty elections a sign of the times



Voters will go to the polls Tues., Nov. 6 to make a variety of choices regarding local candidates and issues. If you think your daily life won’t be impacted by the results, think twice. The local election affects everything from your children in the classroom to the amount of time it takes you to drive from home to office. Voters […]
