Janine Marnien The Crescenta Valley Town Council will vote on a change to its bylaws Thursday, but some members think that action should go beyond one item on the document. The bylaws were written more than a decade ago, and while several sections were redrafted in 2000, members like Councilman Al LaJoice think a complete overhaul is overdue. "The way it was written when the council started does not serve the community anymore," he said. "The original people that wrote them didn't know the direction the Town Council would eventually take."

LA CRESCENTA — Voters in the Crescenta Valley Town Council election returned an unprecedented number of marked absentee ballots Friday, which organizers hope means higher turnout at the polls today as well. Residents of unincorporated La Crescenta and Montrose are invited to vote for three of nine council candidates between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. today in the career room at Crescenta Valley High School, the only council election polling place. Last year, 95 of the area’s approximately 11,000 registered voters requested absentee ballots to weigh in on who should represent the community on the council, which serves as an advisory board to Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael Antonovich.

Gretchen Hoffman With no system in place to prohibit voter fraud and a history of low voter turnout, an election committee for the Crescenta Valley Town Council is looking to make some changes. The committee is calling on the council to do away with absentee ballots altogether -- a move the committee's three members believe will help ensure a fair election. It's a recommendation that is expected to come under fire at Thursday's Town Council meeting, both from within the advisory body and from community members who can't make it to the polling site during the current four-hour window for voting.

On Oct. 3, John Drayman's community commentary article was printed in the Glendale News-Press. I consider it a very personal, derogatory attack on my character. This article was entitled "Dave Weaver's political purge." It discussed my conduct what he perceived to be my reasons for requesting the removal of two Glendale commissioners from their posts. I have waited for some time to make sure that what I wished to write was well thought-out and that I had time to verify some of the statements that I am making.
