Councilmember Bob Kellar has changed his ballot designation for the upcoming Sulphur Springs School District bond measure that will appear on the March ballot.
Kellar’s name will be accompanied by the designation, “Santa Clarita Citizen” instead of the original “Santa Clarita City Council,” he said.
This is because the council has rules requiring a councilmember to explicitly state he or she represents only himself or herself and not the council or city.
Kellar previously said he signed as he did thinking it would not be an issue, but Steve Petzold, who wrote the argument opposing the $78 million Measure US, requested the change.
Petzold forwarded an email from City Manager Ken Striplin that indicated the change. Kellar confirmed, saying, “I told you if I was in error, I would correct it. I was in error, so I corrected it.”
