A call for Town Council candidates

October 13, 2010

Do you live in the unincorporated area of La Crescenta, basically between Briggs and Pennsylvania avenues?

If so, your Town Council needs you to step up and represent your town. Any registered voter can run for a seat on the Town Council as long as you've lived in our town for at least one year. You will be amazed at how much you will learn about every aspect of your community.

It really is an eye-opener and a wonderful experience to get to know your sheriff, fire, California Highway Patrol, utility and school representatives, as well as the pastors of our great churches. And the list goes on and on.


The benefits and knowledge you receive are great, but so is the satisfaction that you are giving back to your community. What things have concerned you, be it traffic safety or buildings on Foothill Boulevard? The Crescenta Valley Town Council gets involved with everything.

Once a year — Nov. 6 in 2010 — three voting seats and three alternate seats on our Town Council are up for election. It's not that hard to win, but we need more candidates to run this time to give the voters a choice. Go to our website,, and download an application to be returned by Oct. 17, when we will introduce our new candidates at the farmer's market in Montrose.

It really is a lot of fun to get to know your community. Our regular meetings are at 7 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month at the new La Crescenta Library.

Our survey about possible new laws for building in residential areas will be available at the election and on our website.

Also, come to our Pancake Breakfast Oct. 23 at Crescenta Valley High School!

Celebrating a year as a church without walls

On Oct. 17, St. Luke's Anglican Church will celebrate its first anniversary of worshipping, praying and serving as a "church without walls."

This hidden blessing came after losing its property to the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles ("Court won't review church," March 2). Since then, St. Luke's has met in leased space for its church activities at the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Glendale and maintained offices in the Foursquare Building in La Crescenta. During this time, St. Luke's has received an overwhelming show of support from its fellow churches in the Crescenta Valley.
