To the Editor:

Maria Gutzeit is one of the candidates running for City Council. This is an opportunity for the city to really help itself.

I've watched her public career for the past five or so years and have to share what I've seen. Remember when the Newhall County Water District board meetings were reported by The Signal as notorious affairs with very little being accomplished? Maria was elected to the board and things changed.

After a very short time as the "rookie," she became the president.

Why? I have to assume that being a successful small business owner she came on board with a lot of horse sense. She must be a fantastic mediator to get those contentious foes to work together.

As for her private life, she and her husband care for her mother. And Mom is obviously proud of her daughter. (She has an "Elect Maria" sign affixed to the front of her walker.) Maria is an avid bicyclist and can add having a hand in widening Bouquet Canyon Road for cars and bicycles to her list of accomplishments. She is a member of the Senior Center board.

Maria's business is environmental compliance expertise for businesses large and small. She is an environmentalist with realistic expectations. (In other words, she can see both sides of issues green.)
