VOLUME 12 NO. 15


Incumbents Arizmendi, Goss and Delmar Re-elected

On Tuesday, voters in Sierra Madre, a town well known for 
its diversity of opinions, sat all differences aside and literally, 
saved the town. The council race was civil and returned 
the incumbents to the council to serve another 4 years. But, 
probably what was on the top of everyone's mind was the 
defeat of Measure D, the effort by outsiders to dismantle the 
city's financial base.

 Edward Garcia, chairman of the No On D campaign probably 
said it best is a recent email{

 "This is a victory for all Sierra Madre Residents. This is a victory 
for our autonomy and for keeping the high quality of life 
we enjoy in our town. We sent a clear message to the Pasadena-
based Tea Party that we do not want them interfering in 
Sierra Madre! Their odd form of "burn it down" tactics are irresponsible, 
offensive, and insulting! Their condescending narrative 
was telling us what we should and shouldn't have and 
they implied we were not informed enough to make our own 
decisions regarding what is best for us. One would think that a 
tea party group would support a small municipal government 
that took fiscal issues seriously rather than try to push them 
into disincorporation that would in turn hand over control to 
the larger county-government entity. They have tried this type 
of ballot initiative elsewhere in Southern California by getting 
a few hundred signatures and lost every time. This time, Sierra 
Madre dealt them their biggest loss!" MVNews
