As of the writing of this article, there have not been any applications received for the Crescenta Valley Town Council election which takes place on Saturday, Nov. 1. This article offers a synopsis of what the community needs in a candidate.
Having served on the Council for several years, I have found that there are qualities in a Councilmember that are vital to the community at large. I urge candidates to personally reflect on these and, even more importantly, I urge voters to make sure their vote is cast for a candidate that has all of these qualities. It is truly in the best interest of the community to have qualified Councilmembers.
Taken from “The American’s Creed,” and adapted to our Council, it would be great if a candidate would be able to say, and mean, “I therefore believe it is my duty to my [community] to love it, to support [the Council], to obey its [bylaws], to respect [my fellow Councilmembers and residents and businesses], and to defend it against all enemies.” How does this apply and what questions should be considered?
