The Presidential race has been on everyone’s mind, but local elections are just as important.  June primaries are just around the corner. The Crescenta Valley Town Council has been hosting the supervisor candidates for the last several months. Kathryn Barger will be speaking at the next Town Council meeting on May 19 at 7 p.m. at the La Crescenta Library, 2809 Foothill Blvd.
Local politics are very important. In fact, it is because of our local politics and Supervisor Antonovich that the new medians will be installed on Foothill Boulevard. There were over 70 people present at the April 27 community outreach meeting. It is wonderful that La Crescenta has so many informed and concerned citizens. Lisa Woung of Los Angeles County Public Works and her staff gave a complete presentation and answered all questions from the public. The biggest concerns from the community included questions about vegetation and tree choices along with wanting to know how La Crescenta can get enough money to complete the entire project right away. The CVTC website will be updated with information and timelines as this project moves forward.
This could not have happened without the help of co-chairs Robbyn Battles and Desiree Rabinov and the involvement of Kaipo Chock and all of the Crescenta Valley Chamber of Commerce board members.
La Crescenta also has an amazing community full of hardworking volunteers dedicated to the good of our youth. This was evident at the 5th Annual Prayer Breakfast on April 23 held at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in La Crescenta. Proceeds from this event benefit CVTC scholarships. Under the direction of Harry Leon and Danette Erickson, the prayer breakfast continues to flourish. The entire committee worked together to bring a special guest speaker, former L.A. City Attorney Carmen Trutanich, who spoke about the youth and the importance of job-readiness, not just college-readiness. Important guests from all over attended the event including Congressman Adam Schiff, Supervisor Antonovich, Superintendent Winfred Roberson, GUSD board members and more.
The Crescenta Valley Town Council invites you to join us at the Thursday, May 19 meeting at 7 p.m. We will honor the local youths who have earned CVTC scholarships.
