Editor’s Note: Is it any wonder that residents of Lake View Terrace, Sunland-Tujunga and other areas of the far Northeast San Fernando Valley are up in arms over the draft redistricting maps? Would you want to be represented by Richard Alarcon, the indicted felon who has been able to put off his trial indefinitely because of a gutless District Attorney, a career politician already is running to get back into the state Legislature and has used his clout to get his daughter a six-figure job on the Public Works Commission doling out massive construction contracts as a prelude to running for the City Council herself? Some residents of those communities are fighting mad and ready to do something about.
My fellow Lake View Terrace residents,
The “new” draft redistricting map put most of LVT and Sunland-Tujunga in CD7
with Richard Alarcon as our councilman.
Shadow Hills, La Tuna Cyn and LVT south of Foothill has been moved to CD 6 -
Tony Cardenas’s district. We voted for Wendy Greuel over Tony Cardenas in
CD 2 eight years ago!
WE ARE CD 2. There is strength in numbers. Sunland-Tujunga isn’t going to take
this quietly. Neither will we!
See you Saturday at noon at 7747 Foothill Blvd in Sunland for this major
community meeting. See the attached flyer for more information and maps.
care about what the next ten years will bring to our community, you need to be
at this meeting.
Bring your neighbors.
Kristin Sabo – Lake View Terrace!
Our city council district
has been proposed to be split apart in a very disruptive way.
The proposed boundary is
now the 210 fwy splitting us off from the equine community
we have in common like Shadow Hills, La Tuna Canyon and sending us instead with
communities in the San Fernando Valley whom we have nothing in common.
Here is the new council
district proposed for us which puts us in Council District 7 under
Richard Alarcon. Part of Lake View Terrace, Shadow
Hills, La Tuna Canyon and Sun
the Stonehurst Area gets put into CD6 presently represented by
Tony Cardenas. This effectively disengages our rural communities who work
protect our rural environment, water shed, quality of life, equine importance and also
puts us in districts whose representatives were not elected by us.
We are meeting Saturday
at noon at 7747 Foothill Blvd to outline how we are going to
get this mess cleaned up! We are CD2! The redistricting process has rules that
protect us from this kind of ripping up of the district, the same rules that
protect us from
being thrown out of our element, we need to do what we do best, UNITE and stand
