Calm down, everyone. I’m not running for office. I know you’re sad about that. If this were a contest about whose website is the best, I’m pretty sure I would win. But this is actually about important things, like schools and city ordinances and how your tax money is spent.

I’m not suggesting that if you didn’t know about the election you’ve been living under rock. All I am saying is that we get caught up in our busy lives, and if you don’t happen to read the Acorn, or Patch, or see the proliferation of campaign signs on medians and front lawns all around town, you might not realize that Election Day is next Tuesday, November 5. There’s no flashy presidential vote, or even one for mayor. Just some local level – but still very important – positions for which we are called upon to choose the best candidates.

School Board

This is district-wide for the Las Virgenes Unified School District. Five people are running for three open spots on the board that makes important decisions for our schools that affect our children and our neighborhoods. The candidates are:

Angela Cutbill

Mary Jo Ammon

Lesli Stein

Ray Pearl

Dallas B. Lawrence

City Council

These are the men and women who make up the governing board of the city of Agoura Hills. If you have a beef, or a suggestion, they are the ones who will hear it. Use them early and often. And cast your vote – again, five candidates are running for three open spots:

Denis Weber 

William D. Koehler 

Chris Anstead

Harry Schwarz

Meril S. Platzer

If you’ve ignored all the ads and the mailers that have come to your house or apartment and you have no idea when or where this is happening, LET IT BE KNOWN. It’s Tuesday, November 5, from 7:00 AM to 8:00 PM. Locate your polling place by clicking this link.
