Incumbents back in Agoura

Three incumbents running for the Agoura Hills City Council sailed into office Tuesday, with Mayor Denis Weber, the leader, capturing nearly 25 percent of the votes.

Councilmembers Bill Koehler and Harry Schwarz each received 21 percent […]

Cream rises to the top in Nov. 5 vote

The local city council and school board elections have come and gone. The voters, it appears, chose wisely. With 20 years of service on the Agoura Hills City Council and a new four-year term ahead of him, Mayor Denis Weber brings a new list of goals that he wants to tackle. But the longest-serving politician in city history also remains […]

I sent the following message to the 2013 Committee to Re-Elect Councilmember Bill Koehler and to the website electdenisweber.com because someone from each of these campaigns left a mailer page touting the candidate and asking us to vote on Nov. 5. It’s hard enough to slog through the election material in our mailbox, and littering our doorsteps is very inconsiderate […]
