What a joy it has been to see the community come together to support Measure S (“Board incumbents, Measure S win,” April 6). Bravo. Which brings me full circle to the reason for this letter. I just wanted to say thank you.
Thank you each and every one who have stepped up and been a candidate. Thank you Mohill and thank you Drayman. Thank you incumbents, first-timers and returning suspects. Thank you pithy pontificators, speaking to crowds of six. If you bore me, I'll still thank you.
If you are elected by a minimal margin, thanks. If you are embarrassingly defeated, yup, thanks. Every election I know comes at a price, but this one got under my skin more. I found myself irritated. I squirmed.
So, I am writing to say thank you.
Isn’t busting violators their job?
Will someone please explain why the Glendale Police Department needs a “grant funded enforcement operation” in order to cite drivers who break the law related to cell phone and texting actions while driving (“Month-long crackdown on distracted driving begins; 50 citations issued,” April 4)?
I thought the salary paid to a police officer meant he or she was responsible for upholding the law, sans state grants and other monetary aids.
