Krekorian has served this area well I would first like to thank Joseph Shannon (?Krekorian not serving public,? July 25) for writing such a discriminatory article against Assemblyman Paul Krekorian because it fired up the need for a proper response. It?s quite fascinating that our assemblyman has gotten so much negative PR for his decision to run, yet no one has taken the time to highlight any of his positive attributes. While it is common for public figures to be scrutinized in the press, Shannon took the liberty to focus on Krekorian?

I would first like to thank Joseph Shannon (“Krekorian not serving public,” July 25) for writing such a discriminatory article against Assemblyman Paul Krekorian because it fired up the need for a proper response. It’s quite fascinating that our assemblyman has gotten so much negative PR for his decision to run, yet no one has taken the time to highlight any of his positive attributes. While it is common for public figures to be scrutinized in the press, Shannon took the liberty to focus on Krekorian’s interest to find a residence in Valley Glen “just in time” for the Los Angeles City Council race.

Re: “ Gordon's sleazy on sidewalk issue ,” Mailbag letter, July 17: Thank you to the writer, Tim Elliott, for acknowledging that Vice Mayor David Gordon is doing what he was elected to do, i.e., representing the wishes of the vast majority of residents on Screenland Drive who do not want sidewalks. As the saying goes, it ain't over until it's over. Susan Stodghill Burbank

Thomas Walls claims that no one in Rep. Adam Schiff's district benefits from the Congressman's vote to increase the federal debt limit (“No more support for Schiff,” Aug. 5). Well, I am in his district and I disagree with Walls. By voting to raise the debt limit of the federal government, Schiff has helped to ensure that all holders of federal government bonds will continue to receive their interest payments as promised by the federal government. It would damage the reputation and standing of the United States were our country to default on its debts.

Karen S. Kim BURBANK -- By abstaining on a vote that would have passed a privacy bill prohibiting businesses from selling consumer information without the consumer's permission, state Assemblyman Dario Frommer (D-Burbank) has angered and disappointed some local voters. Local members of the Congress of California Seniors, a political group with more than 600,000 members statewide, is drafting a letter to Frommer that expresses their displeasure about his nonvote.

As the final hours ticked away for Tuesday’s special primary election, campaign workers in Glendale and Burbank were scrambling to make last-minute phone pitches to prospective voters. Volunteers at Democrat Mike Gatto’s headquarters in Burbank sat at laptop computers, using a predictive dialing system to contact voters who were most likely to answer the phone and participate in the election to fill a vacant seat for the 43rd Assembly District, which includes most of Glendale, Burbank and parts of Los Angeles.

GLENDALE — The budget deal struck in Sacramento at the 11th hour may have sent a sigh of cautious relief through the halls of local agencies Thursday, but for the area lawmakers who saw it through a state capitol lockdown, the moment was more about showers and quick flights home. Locked inside the Senate chambers since Tuesday in an effort to secure the one Republican vote needed to pass the long-overdue state budget, most lawmakers returned to their districts in earnest.

Burbank residents set the City Council agenda this week at three town hall meetings the council hosted to hear from constituents in a more casual setting outside City Hall. Their chief complaint? Steep water bills. Residents frustrated about the high cost of water - despite their conservation efforts - discovered they weren't the only ones. The city, which gets most of its water from the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, has also faced its own rate hikes for the imports, said Mayor Dave Golonski.

GLENDALE — Democratic Assemblyman Paul Krekorian’s showing in Tuesday’s special election for Los Angeles City Council District 2 will decide more than just a seat on the dais. No matter how the final results come down, experts said Krekorian’s gamble will either pay political dividends or invoke voter ire when his Assembly term ends in 2010. “If I lived outside of [Los Angeles], in Burbank or Glendale, and my representative wanted to be on the L.A. City Council, then I would question whether he cares that much about my interests,” said Martin Saiz, professor and chairman of the political science department at Cal State Northridge.
