Laurie Ender: Santa Clarita’s good fortune

LaurieendercropThis is very, very good news for our democracy. Laurie Ender, a former top producer for “Entertainment Tonight” and “Access Hollywood,” has been elected to the Santa Clarita City Council.

Laurie gave up the syndie newsmag wars some time ago to be a full-time mother and community activist in her ‘hood of Valencia. She and her husband, CBS Entertainment senior veep Chris Ender, have deep roots in the community where they have lived for the past 16 years and where they are raising three fabulous sons, Jason, Griffin and Davis.

Laurie is the kind of best-and-brightest, pillar of her community that is desperately needed in politics, particularly at the rubber-meets-the-road local level. Any journalist who’s covered one minute of local-yokel politics knows that all too often, those who wind up in elected positions are people who can’t actually put a sentence together on their own, let alone handle serious business.Laurie, on the other hand, is schooled in the high-wire act of producing a nightly television news program.

During the past few years she’s learned the ropes of public policy by serving as a Parks, Recreation and Community Services Commissioner for the city of Santa Clarita. She has her alpha-mom bona fides as a former president of the Santa Clarita Valley PTA and a member of Valencia High School’s Action Team for Partnership, among other school and community board positions.

    ROTFLMAO!!! Obviously, Laurie Ender, SCV’s yokel EXTAORDINAIRE, fell off that hire-wire onto her head one too many times. Ender makes “local-yokels” everywhere look like Einsteins!

    And this is only one of many Laurie Ender Foot-In-Mouth examples!

    Ms. Ender was elected with lots of cash from developers. ($30,000). She is proving that no matter how you apply polish to a turd it still smells.

    Laurie Ender has proven to be incompetent, dishonest, and a complete idiot.
