GUSD School Board Election Forum Tonight and Glendale Election Information Night

If you missed the GUSD school board election forum that we held on March 2 you still have one more chance in the Crescenta Valley to hear where the GUSD school board candidates stand on a variety of issues. The election forum is March 19, at the La Crescenta Library community room, 2809 Foothill Blvd., starting at 7 p.m. Please take every opportunity to become informed and vote in the Glendale election on April 7. Even though only a portion of La Crescenta will be voting in the election for Glendale City Council and four ballot measures, everyone living in the La Crescenta area will have the opportunity to vote to fill two seats on the GUSD school board. This is your school district and your vote for school board members who you believe will make an impact on our schools. For more information about each candidate and the upcoming election, log onto www.glendalevotes.org.

The Crescenta Valley Town Council, which is hosting the forum tonight, is a very important organization and you should utilize them. This Council is made up of local area residents who are elected by the community to represent the voice of the unincorporated portion of Los Angeles County in the Crescenta Valley and forward that information on to our county Supervisor Michael Antonovich. Some of the issues they have helped to resolve and bring to our community are the crossing guard that was so desperately needed at Los Amigos and Rosemont for Rosemont Middle School, a lighted crosswalk at Glenwood and Foothill for CVHS students and the Crescenta Commons at the corner of Orange and Rosemont avenues. The CV Town Council also strives to make sure that the views and preferences of the residents they represent in the Crescenta Valley are considered by the county. These include the 710 extension, open space planning and land use issues.

We are holding our 1st Annual Texas Hold ’Em Poker Tournament on Thursday, March 26 and we would love you to join us. Our past president Rick Dinger has offered the use of his newly expanded office space to hold the event. It is located in the same place as his current office for CV Insurance at 3156 Foothill Blvd., La Crescenta. Registration starts at 6 p.m. and the cards fly at 7 p.m.  The buy-in is $75 and includes $2,500 worth of chips, food and drinks. If you register by March 23 you will receive $500 in extra chips. Tableside drinks will be served and we will have a taco truck, late night pizza delivery and desserts to finish off the night. We have over $2,000 in prizes including a Mac iPad Air. You can find the registration form on our website at www.montrosechamber.org or you can call the office to register or become a sponsor. We hope to see you there!

Don’t miss our election information night that the Montrose Chamber is hosting in conjunction with the office of the Glendale City Clerk on Monday, March 30 also held at the Sparr Heights Community Center. City Clerk Ardy Kassakhian will be talking about the most pressing issues facing the City, the upcoming ballot measures you will be voting on and how important your vote is. He will also give you valuable election information. Help us get out the vote in the Crescenta Valley by getting yourself and your friends and neighbors informed.
