  • Letter: Fiscal responsibility needs to be stressed

    Re: “Funds help pay for the general welfare,” Mailbag, March 15. I'm sure letter-writer Fred Fox is a delightful fellow. And I assume that his words are sincere. My problem is with his logic. He mentions that other California cities do the...
  • Letter: Transfer is a lifeline to the General Fund

  • Letter: More details about the General Fund

    The city manager’s March 22 op-ed, “Glendale’s City Charter is clear,” accuses me of having “bad facts.” I wish he respected the public enough to have been careful with his. Here are just some examples. I’m not...
  • Letter: Government should also obey law

    In “Funds help pay for the general welfare” (Mailbag, March 15) Fred Fox wrote he’s disturbed by the lawsuit questioning the appropriateness of transferring utility monies to support general services. But, the lawsuit addresses...
  • Letter: Other words to describe Jim Starbird

    Letter: Other words to describe Jim Starbird
    If there is a word that seems to be overused in the past decade or so is “great.” It has lost its exceptional acumen. We say “That's a great pair of shoes!” when we really mean “appealing design.” Likewise, we accrue...
  • Letter: Court should interpret charter's intent

    As a Glendale resident and GWP rate-paying customer, I have been very interested in the Forum letters about how revenues from GWP are distributed — for water and electricity purchases, repair and upgrading of infrastructure, operating expenses,...
  • Drayman on the hook for outstanding debt

    Drayman on the hook for outstanding debt
    When former Councilman John Drayman begins his five years of probation, expected to begin next month, the first meetings he has with the Los Angeles County Probation Office will include a thorough review of his assets and liabilities to determine how much...
  • Council candidates want to slow down development in downtown Glendale

    As thousands of apartment units continue to fill downtown Glendale, all five candidates for City Council told about 130 people on Wednesday night at the first election forum this campaign season that they believe in slowing down development. “It&...
