To The Editor:

It was interesting to read in The Mighty Signal that TimBen Boydston was selected to receive the SCV Press Club's Most Controversial Newsmaker of the Year Award for 2007. The term "most controversial"
generally has negative connotations.

However, if acting with great integrity as a city councilman and coming to City Council meetings better prepared on a full range of topics than any of the other council member is considered controversial, then the citizens of Santa Clarita can be justifiably proud of "controversial" TimBen.

When he was selected to fill the remainder of Cameron Smyth's term, Mr. Boydston made the proper ethical decision to not run for election to the City Council as an incumbent when this term expired. Now that we've had an opportunity to see Councilman Boydston in action, I can only hope he will decide to run for his own seat in 2009.

Based upon his performance during the brief time that he has represented the citizens of Santa Clarita, he will certainly receive my support and vote.
