Maria Gutzeit also is eyeing a City Council seat, but she wants to make sure it's clear that her focus for the time being will be on her responsibilities to the Newhall County Water District, she said Thursday.
"Overall, I think the city is really well run and we're very lucky to have that. I think one thing that I can bring to the table is a record of a balancing business and environmental issues," Gutzeit said. "And we definitely need good government and a council that works together well."
