also been making his colleagues uncomfortable by placing his service
revolver -- he is a Huntington Beach police officer -- on the dais during
public meetings. And then there's his failure to file campaign disclosure
statements on time for several years.
Conlosh, who is next in line to fill the city's rotating mayor
position come January, does not deserve to be part of this board for four
Instead, the Independent believes incumbent Larry Crandall should be
reelected and Planning Commissioner Cheryl Brothers should be elected to
help lead Fountain Valley into the future.
Crandall is seeking his second term on the council. He has also served
as a trustee of the Fountain Valley School District for eight years, as
well as a member of the Advisory Committee for the Disabled, 67th
Assembly District Republican Central Committee, Fountain Valley Traffic
Committee and the Orange County Sanitation District, to name a few.
His main goal is to continue to support a fiscally responsible budget
and strong fire and police departments because he said safety is a main
concern of city residents. He also wants to consider expanding the
Fountain Valley senior center to accommodate the city's aging population.
Crandall has a positive track record in the community, and he is
dedicated to making Fountain Valley a positive place to live. He supports
the city's recreational vehicle parking ordinance, but if reelected, he
said he will propose to change the language of the law to require that
all RVs be moved out of the neighborhood after the time limit is up.
A seasoned candidate, Brothers has said she wants to focus on
providing needed recreational opportunities for residents without
bringing in new taxes. Like Crandall, she also wants to ensure the needs
of the city's seniors are met.
Besides the Planning Commission, Brothers has been a member of the
Fountain Valley Community Services Commission, Orange County Grand Jury,
Citizens for Mile Square Park and the Fountain Valley Chamber of
Commerce, among other groups.
