So much has been happening in the past several days that it’s hard to zero in on one topic this week. Please hang on, if you don’t mind getting a glimpse of a cluttered mind.
First, it occurs to me that, especially with a school board campaign underway, it’s time to address the subject of letters to the editor.
Please believe it when we say we love getting letters for publication. They boost La Cañada’s social and political discourse and have the potential to shape our public policy. If enough people state their cases in a public forum about a law that protects trees over personal property rights, for example, or about the school board’s stance on any given policy, it’s possible that our community leaders might read the rumblings of their neighbors, recognize an issue and make adjustments accordingly.
