I had the opportunity to attend the candidate forum at last Thursday’s (Oct. 16) Crescenta Valley Town Council meeting at Crescenta Valley High School. During the forum, the candidates had a chance to make a statement introducing themselves. It was impressive, hearing the accomplishments, goals and contributions these people have already made to the community and are still eager to give to the area.
Among the experience being offered by the candidates is that of incumbents who’ve been instrumental in getting the utilities moved underground along Foothill Boulevard, having the Hometown Heroes banners installed and securing funding for the library that is currently under construction.
Those new faces vying for a seat on the council bring to the table ambition, a fresh perspective and a desire to maintain and/or improve the foothills area.
