Frank, Controversial Kellar Seeks Reelection

Bob_kellarBob Kellar has served on the Santa Clarita City Council for a dozen years and is seeking reelection for another four year term. He owns what he describes as a “small real estate office” called Kellar-Davis in Canyon Country. The San Fernando Valley native was drafted into the Army and served from 1965-67. He says he was “fortunate” not to be sent to Vietnam. He left the service as a Sergeant E-5.

On seeking reelection Kellar says his goal “first and foremost” is continue doing his absolute best serving the citizens of Santa Clarita. When asked if there was a particular vision he has in his next term or a particular area of concern he says you can never say “this in my big issue.”

You’ve got to look at a whole variety of issues and circumstances to properly serve. I will always consider public safety as one of paramount importance and we need to focus on that at all times to ensure the absolute safety of our citizens,” said Kellar.

Of continuing concern for him is the clean-up of the former Whittaker-Bermite site, and the Cemex mining negotiations, for which he has served as point person on the council for many years.

“The mega-mining operation continues to be a huge issue for our community and we’ve got to continue to win that battle for our community,” said Kellar.

At city council meetings Kellar is known to speak his mind and serve as a man of the people. In June, he voted against a pay raise for the city council along with current Mayor Laurie Ender.

Kellar is even known to deliver the applause line of the evening when defending the public’s pocketbook. You can read that story, here.

However, Kellar’s tenure has not been without its share of controversy. Most notably he attended a Minutemen rally on January 16, 2010 where he proclaimed to be a “Proud Racist” and drew national attention.

Kellar, when asked to revisit the issue on the two-year anniversary of the moment, had this to say.

“If you listened to what I said, I am not a racist. I am an American. And I believe in upholding the law and standing firm for the things that has made America great. And the words that I said that day if you will listen to them were exactly that and nothing else,” said Kellar.

Kellar’s comments were videotaped and posted on YouTube. You can view the video by clicking here.

Kellar takes pride in reflecting the thoughts and concerns of Santa Clarita residents.

“I believe I have done a good job of listening to the community members and doing my utmost to do what’s right for our citizens. If I get reelected I plan on doing that and continuing my efforts to be a responsible representative.And once again to the citizens I say thank you. It’s been an honor and a pleasure. And I look forward to serving another four years,” said Kellar.
