Recently, having received and read their sample ballots, several electors have called me regarding my position on this subject. I believe this position should be appointed! In the 1920s, Torrance was a small, isolated community of less than 2,000 residents. In those days, everyone knew everyone else. The residents most qualified to know the ways of government and the laws whereby local governments operate were well known to all of the electors.

Torrance school officials are studying a plan that would levy a small tax on property owners to help maintain school grounds and recreation facilities.

Last winter the district cut $2.56 million from its budget of nearly $80 million, but later restored $1.
