Loyalty to Sheila Kuehl


Dear Editor:

I fail to understand how the friends of the Santa Monica Mountains can so easily forget the important work Sheila Kuehl has done during her many years of service to our community. Without Sheila (and Sen. Fran Pavley) in Sacramento, there would not have been a Benefit Assessment District, which raised $30 million dollars to purchase lands and protect our Mountains. SOKA and Ahmanson Ranch would likely have been lost to developers. Plus, she’s two years younger than Jerry Brown, which means her age is no excuse. Sheila has earned our support, and anything less from us on her run for L.A. County Supervisor [in the June 3 election] smacks of betrayal. Doesn’t loyalty mean anything anymore?
