Heidi Ann Ashcraft, the former Torrance School Board member and highest vote getter in the 2014 City Council election, is not running for re-election.
I am really sad to see her go.
She stood up to a lot of abusive powers and interests in the city. She was not afraid to vote "No" and signal her opposition to the rest of the city council.
She has a been a calm yet strong opposition to corrupt Pat Furey and the rest of the left-wing phalanx which wanted to shut down the the Torrance Refinery.
I am really sad to see her go. I wish her the best in whatever other ventures that she pursues.
Thanks for everything, Heidi!
