Racism in Oak Park felt at age 7

I moved to Oak Park in 1992, and within weeks I endured my first direct experience with rac- ism. I was 7 years old. Tony Knight, elementary principal at the time, didn’t reprimand the perpetrator when I reported the incident. As superintendent, I question Knight’s ability to lead an initiative to address the safety of Black students in OPUSD. It […]

Peter Kraut in Calabasas

Peter Kraut has my vote. On Labor Day, I was pleasantly surprised to meet Peter Kraut as he was introducing himself to our neighborhood. We had a very informative conversation regarding the past and future of our city. Peter listened to my current concerns. He will be a great addition to our City Council as he is attentive, available and […]

Kraut, Weintraub for city council

As a long-time active resident of Calabasas, I am pleased to support Peter Kraut and Alicia Weintraub in the upcoming City Council election. I was a co-founder of the Calabasas Park Homeowners Association 46 years ago, a founding member of the local Veterans of Foreign Wars and a long-time member of the Calabasas Country Club. Our children attended the local […]

Likes Fredericks- Ploussard

This election is very important. Calabasas has a great opportunity to elect a candidate with no ties to anyone in the city. Dr. Susan Fredericks-Ploussard offers fresh outside perspective and grit rooted from a passion for helping the community. She has two graduate degrees and extensive business and public health experience. These are two things that will be crucial for […]

Wants to reelect Alicia Weintraub

With less than a month until the Nov. 3 election, there’s one candidate who unquestionably deserves your vote. Mayor Alicia Weintraub, who has served on the Calabasas City Council for the past five years, has delivered on her word to advocate for the needs of every resident. She listens without judgment, provides a balanced perspective, remains even-keeled even in times […]

Kate Vadehra has LVUSD vote

I am writing to pledge my support for Dr. Kate Vadehra as candidate for Las Virgenes Unified School District Board of Education. Her background as a pediatrician and as PFC executive board member—with positions at the elementary, middle and high school level that include five years as PFC president at Calabasas High School and Round Meadow Elementary School—would make Dr. […]

Kowalski for LVUSD board

In a time of such change, I am encouraged by the vision of Kiyomi Kowalski as she runs to be a board member for the Las Virgenes Unified School District. Kiyomi Kowalski has earned an impressive list of endorsements from other elected officials and community leaders, including school board members, city council members and more. But this comes as no […]

In Agoura Hills, vote Jan Gerstel

I am writing to voice my support for Jan Gerstel for City Council. I have gotten to know Jan personally, and he has always been a person for the community, from bringing in goats to protect our community from the Woolsey fire to listening to the community and fighting to prevent a cell tower from being placed next to our […]

Likes team Northrup-Weber

I am writing in strong support for the reelection of Linda Northrup and Illece Buckley Weber for Agoura Hills City Council. Over the years, I have been fortunate enough to have firsthand experience working with both Linda and Illece, and they have become role models and mentors to me on what true leadership looks like. I strongly urge all Agoura […]

Northrup has the experience

In support of Linda Northrup for City Council, Linda has proven herself an invaluable resource to our city. She goes above and beyond to ensure Agoura Hills continues its legacy as a tight-knit community. She is a constant presence during outreach days, celebrating the beauty of Agoura Hills and is a source of strength during the challenges our city faces. […]
