Hall’s Position Proves Convincing

Hall’s Position Proves Convincing

Editor, Because of the article written by Tom Osborne (“When Ideology Trumps Facts,” Column, Oct. 24 edition), my wife Maria and I finally agree to vote for Michele Hall. Maria and I agree with her logic and conclusions on this and other issues. Thank you, Tom. Maria and Bernard Rutkoski, Laguna Beach

Casting Only One Vote, For Hall

Casting Only One Vote, For Hall

Editor, During this campaign, I was surprised to learn that many people don’t know who Michele Hall is or what she’s done for this community. When her maiden name Oliver comes up, she then becomes more recognizable, especially with alumni. It’s not because her actions aren’t meaningful newsworthy endeavors or haven’t warranted the media’s attention […]

Trick or Treat Politics

Trick or Treat Politics

Gale “Morrie” Granger (“Can’t Support Uninformed Candidate” Indy Oct. 11) and Tom Osborne (“When Ideology Trumps Fact” Indy Oct. 11) falsely accuse candidate Michele Hall of being a “global warming” heretic.  This Halloween week witch-hunt comes as support for Hall surges. That’s because Hall has the energy and ideas to forge new solutions for homelessness, […]

Will Double Standard Politics Pay Off?

Will Double Standard Politics Pay Off?

Editor, So Jon Madison catches hell for embellishing his past, and Michele Hall is accused of being “dishonest” for saying she is a “community volunteer.” But Rob Zur Schmiede claims on a fake Republican mailer he’s a “Proven business leader” who will “protect our tax dollars,” and the press in town gives him a free […]

Global-Warming Flooding Concerns Hall

Global-Warming Flooding Concerns Hall

Editor, I found Tom Osborne’s column titled “When Ideology Trumps Fact,” interesting and widely untrue. He accuses me of essentially not caring for our planet or having any knowledge of global warming. Both of these facts are not true. After the debate two weeks ago when the question was asked to me regarding what I […]

Boyd, Madison Skip Firebrand Forum Incumbent Kelly Boyd and candidate Jon Madison skipped the final public forum Wednesday, Oct. 29, for candidates seeking election to the Laguna Beach City Council.

When Ideology Trumps Facts In the ongoing, fractious city council election, Lagunans have been jolted by Jon Madison’s inability to validate implausible, phony academic achievements. Lagunans received another jolt at the Firebrand Media-organized candidate forum on Oct. 14 when candidate Michele Hall expressed mocking skepticism about human-caused global warming in response to a question from […]

Can’t Support an Uninformed Candidate

Can’t Support an Uninformed Candidate

Editor, I read with interest the results of the forum for candidates for City Council reported in the Independent. I was disappointed to read that candidate Michele Hall felt humans aren’t having an affect on climate change. She indicated she is taking this position after reading an article on the topic. It’s clear that enormous […]

A Battle Over a Ballot Description

A Battle Over a Ballot Description

Editor, I was not questioning whether or not Ms. Hall has ever done community service (“Hall Rebuts a Voter’s Assumption,” Letters, Oct. 17). I was questioning the appropriateness of listing “community volunteer” under her name on the California ballot as if no one else running for city council has done community volunteer work. I, like many others, […]

Hall Represents Fresh Ideas

Hall Represents Fresh Ideas

Editor, Michele Hall and I go way back, at least 20 years.  She is a hard worker, does her homework and is not afraid to take a stand when making hard decisions. Michele and I stood side by side in our successful defeat of the parcel tax like we did years ago when we worked […]

Hall Rebuts a Voter’s Assumption

Editor: As a candidate for city council, I understand completely that residents who do not agree with or question some of my positions are going to take “shots” at me through letters to the editor etc. I honestly have no problem with this. However, when my character or work I have done in this community […]

Hall Represents a Generational Break

Hall Represents a Generational Break

Editor, The LBHS Alumni torch of leadership in our hometown is being passed to Michele (Oliver) Hall, Class of 1985. Michele has been active in community affairs, charity endeavors and civic politics for over a decade and is the first of her generation to run for Laguna Beach City Council. Not surprisingly, local alumni want […]

Another Instance of Misrepresentation?

Another Instance of Misrepresentation?

Editor, Upon opening my sample ballot I was astonished to see the affiliation of one of the candidates, Michele Hall, listed as “community volunteer.”  When did a past president of the Laguna Beach Republican Club and chair of the OC GOP become a community service volunteer versus a political service volunteer? (Or, is it employee?  I’m […]

They also approved the estimated $300,000 makeover of the structure’s exterior, but redirected $1 million budgeted for its interior renovation to instead […]
