Open space preservation will be honored at Nov. 17 event


For more than a decade spanning the turn of the millennium, a small group of people, mostly women, stood up to one of the nation’s largest banks to block the development of a new city in the pristine hills of eastern Ventura County.

Says campaign disengenuous



It is a shame that only 10 percent of the registered voters in Agoura Hills voted in the most recent election. Unfortunately, only 1,400 people decided the fate of our city for the next four years. There are over 14,000 registered voters and a total population of over 20,000. The winners in this race did not sail through this election. […]
