The accomplishments of the council this year is my track record.
My weakness is that I do not like to “cut people off.” This is a negative because I have had a hard time keeping meetings short. However, I was able to solve this problem in that I asked council member Bruce Campbell to be in charge of the speakers’ time for me, and he has done a great job.
I realize that I am not the best at everything, and therefore I try to find who is and enlist their help.
What is the single most important issue facing the Crescenta Valley right now, and how should the council address it?
The single most important issue facing our valley is one of quality of life. This encompasses development, Foothill Boulevard improvements and water issues.
We have many important issues, such as traffic concerns and of course our beloved future dog park, but development without adequate parking, landscaping, etc., is not in our best interest.
The Community Standards District passed about a year ago was a start, and we need to encourage our Glendale neighbors to adopt density control for their portion as well.
Foothill needs to be improved for the sake of all of us — residents and businesses.
We have begun improvements with the diligent work of the Foothill Design Committee’s proposed Community Standards District, and we need to continue with more trees, cleaner streets and encouragement of positive projects.
Our desperate need for water has been a concern for several years.
The council needs to continue to advocate for fair rates for consumers and encourage water conservation techniques be employed by the water district.
