Delmar, Arizmendi Win, Measure UUT Goes Down In Flames & Even Our Fire Department Can't Put It Out

For our 'Yes On UUT' friends-
I know we are supposed to talk about what a great night for democracy it all was, and now that it's over we need to come together and work for the betterment of our town. For all of the people who have the enduring honor of living here in the Foothill Village

But do you want to know what? I don't recall any such warm sentiment when the other side won their elections. And if you want a living and breathing metaphor for the arrogance and misfit rule of the Tax Me Party, what better example than Nancy Walsh's "We can take you out" speech? About as bad as it ever gets, and real proof that an especially bad era has now drawn to a close.

OK, I've gotten that out of my system. I guess we should now move on.

There have been two great electoral victories since I first came to call Sierra Madre home. One was the triumph of Measure V, the other was last night's defeat of Measure UUT. Great electoral victories because each of these two times the residents of this town rose up and, by the very narrowest of vote margins, took control of their town back from outside forces who were only here because they wanted to exploit our birthright and line their pockets. 

City Hall, who for the last six years has believed it was somehow entitled to the highest utility taxes in the State of California, will now have to learn to deal with their financial situations just like everyone else does. No longer will they be able to slide their favorite office cronies $36,000 a year health care plans, drop $30,000 on a so-called Market Demand Study, or give some legacy liquor store owner $5,000 in taxpayer money to defray the costs of opening a wine tasting room.

And maybe now a police cruiser with 95,000 miles on it won't seem quite so old after all. I'm not sure the city will have any choice but to make do. Just like the rest of us.

Welcome to the real world. The one that we the taxpayers live in. This city is ours, we pay for it. And it is time our city government got around to answering to the real boss. The one that just docked them a million bucks in the people's money last night for being careless, irresponsible and entitled.

There is one matter that still needs to be discussed, and that is the 293 "provisional ballots" that have yet to be counted. By the City Clerk's reckoning this is a high number, and there is some concern about what this might mean to our 56 vote margin of victory over Measure UUT.

Here's the good news. Out of those 293 provisional votes, the YES UUT folks would have to win 175 of them in order to reverse their misery. Or about 60%. This is a mathematical improbability. Our opponents will most likely pick up no more than a net total of 10 votes when the provisional votes are counted next week.

This is nowhere near enough to overcome their current 56 vote deficit. Measure UUT has been defeated. The people have won a great victory.

We know who the winners were last night. Rachelle Arizmendi, Denise Delmar, and we the highly taxed townies.

But outside of poor Noah Pants, who were the big losers? Nancy Walsh for one. Her disastrous leadership of the Yes On Measure UUT Committee was a big factor in why it went down to defeat. John Capoccia, John Harabedian and Josh Moran must be added to that list. The shadow government, headed by Bart Doyle, took an enormous hit. Our resident bad bond salesman will now be forced to find himself another town to shake down.

And, of course, Susan Henderson. The publisher of our slanted adjudicated weekly newspaper has once again shown herself to be a political disaster. The disgraced former Executive Director of the California State Democratic Party has, and for the second election in a row, led her all too trusting clientele to a well-deserved defeat. 

If ever there was an example of something that needs to be strapped into a very tight tax tourniquet, the Mountain Views News is it. How much longer should the taxpayers be forced to fund a paper that is really little more than a vanity propaganda tool for one of the most inept political consultants in Los Angeles County?

It really was a great night. I am so proud to know you.

  3. It was a big victory for this town. We could not have asked for more given that three out of the four candidates were going to be re-elected. The next thing to do is get rid of John Capoccia in the next election or maybe he will leave voluntarily like Nancy Walsh. Capoccia may be even worse than Walsh, Harabedian and Moran because he changed his spots. The others are true believers and we would expect no less from them.
    I have alot of confidence that Delmar and Arizmendi are going to prevent City Hall from now trying to punish the voters for not passing the UUT tax by cutting the wrong things or trying to make good on the scare tactics that were used. The entire budget can now be reviewed and the good services maintained and the waste and inefficiency and bloatedness can be cut. Capoccia didn't want to make the tough choices. He just wants the taxpayers to reach into their pockets and throw more money at everything. While that certainly would make his job easier, that's not what the good residents of Sierra Madre need in a City Councilman. I would also venture to say that that while the people of Sierra Madre cast the votes that made the difference in the margin of victory, what would have happened without the Tattler?

  6. The citizenry of Sierra Madre are still fooled by those at City Hall. The results were too close not a resounding majority, just as they were with Measure A. The vote shows City Hall that this just needs to be brought back again. I am sure it will raise its ugly head again in the not too distant future.

    1. Speaking of lawsuits... What is happening with the lawsuit against the Hildreths? How much is that lawsuit going to cost us the taxpayers? There must be something wrong with the city's lawsuit against the Hildrethgs or the Hildreths would have been forced out years ago. How many years has that been going on. What is happening with One Carter's lawsuit? How much is that mismanagement going to cost us? Maybe, with no more money from the general fund to misappropriate, the city will not be able to sponsor any more frivolous lawsuits against our citizenry.

    3. It has occured to me that Sierra Madre repeatedly makes the same mistakes with development projects. Instead of being reasonable and shielding our city from lawsuits, the big egos at City Hall, along with Highsmith, dig in their heels. It really boils down to a lack of skill in conflict resolution. And it is costing the taxpayers a boatload. 1 Carter legal fees exceeded $1MM.

    6. When is it wrong to defend the building and zoning codes of the City? Why have rules if the threat of a lawsuit has the town giving into the developers? Maybe wde should disband the Planning Commission and let director castro build at his pleasure. Have you seen the glass house on Laurel? How about the set backs on Winsor at Montiecito? That is government out of control!

      Delete
    7. Also take a look at the two monstrosities being built next to each other on Camillo just north of Grand View. They tore down the one house that was there, now have ruined their neighbors' view on both sides. We can't get the General Plan Update passed quickly enough! Please pay attention to the Planning Commission meetings. Danny Castro acts as though he never heard of a General Plan, let alone sit in on every meeting for four years. His performance at the Planning Commission meeting was shameful! He "could not" (would not?) answer even the most basic questions from the Commissioners, kept saying, "I don't know the answer to that question. I'll get back to you on that." It was Chairperson Delmar who began answering these basic questions, once she was recognized by the Commission (and NOT Castro)!

    4. the great part about elections is the results are there for everyone to see.

      Arizmendi walked herself and had exactly zero volunteers. Goss walked. Delmar had a bunch of people walking for her and got her a** beat by Goss and Arizmendi by 30 points. Delmar's walkers were so ineffective she barely beat Noah....a candidate that had essentially stopped campaigning a month ago.

      turnout was lower because there was a lot of negativity and a certain type of voter runs from that

      if you think that volunteers walking can influence voter turnout then I look forward to many years of crushing you...just like Delmar and her walkers got crushed.

    5. I think 7:56 was referring to the No on UUT effort.

    7. Whoa, a lot of sour grapes here 8:48. I can say that Denise did walk, but she had volunteers walk also because her budget was limited to only 2 partial mailings and the word had to go out somehow with extra flyers. Money talks in this town, apparently. The negativity in this campaign came from the Yes on the UUT and the so called civility party who have run negative campaigns for the past 3 elections. Despite the last minute smear, and innuendo, the Citizens of Sierra Madre did the right thing and elected the right people.

    9. Perhaps 8:48 am has overlooked the fact that rather than "get her ass beat", Ms. Delmar actually won a seat on council. There were three seats for the winning and she took one. Seems pretty savy to me to not spend a ton of money and a great deal of political capital in the process. I say good for Denise! 8:48 is a dried up old misogynist. Denise owes no one any political favors in her triumph. Her volunteers worked hard for her because they believed her to be the right person for the job.

  31. I have to admit I'm curious about the pickle Goss SHOULD BE in now. I suppose it's something that will be swept under the rug, but I find it astonishing that one of the three people elected last night had joined in on the threats of the sky falling if we didn't pass the UUT, Why anyone would vote for a candidate promising to be ineffective is anyone's guess, but now you would think Goss should be in a no-win situation. If the sky did now fall re city services, he'd basically be following through on his campaign promise that we are all screwed. But when the sky doesn't fall, then he joins the ranks of those who basically threatened us with the potential loss of services, before he was even elected. Was that a Jedi mind trick? At least two candidates tried to resonate with us, vowing to roll up their sleeves and try.

It's all in the presentation, no in the marketing, wait it's both of those and a considerable sum of $. I for one would sure like to get my moneys worth when it came to paying taxes. The parting council sure has nothing to be proud of. It is not easy working for the local in group when were talking about our level of life in Sierra Madre. When you look at the core attitude of us residents we most all want the same thing. The problem is when the same people chose to look at the problem with different influences. I look forward to a council run for the over all benefit of the community not a special interest group. Interest like $, follow the money and you will see long reaching arms.

  39. Denise was the only canadate that was able to answer questions about the city's budget. The other canadates basically said I havn't taken a look .

  40. 5:02 Please let Noah that he could have toggled the switch and marked private for both he and his wife's facebook so that none of his friends could have linked up and passed along his photos; still with that said, he really did not have a realistic grasp reguarding all of the issues the city will be facing. He can try running again in a few years...G. Goss did.

    1. especially when one of his campaign ideas was for the city do something to promote Halloween

      Goss was determined to get on the Council and I wonder about someone who really really really wants to be a Councilmember

  41. My, My it looks as if from some of the comments against Denise's supporters that Nancy Walsh does indeed read the Tattler.

    1. Walsh reads the Tattler? Her problem is that she never read her Council booklets

      so so so glad that she is gone - she'll never show up for Council meetings cause she never showed up when she was elected

  42. Yes, and those expensive, slick campaign mailers? - M$ Arizmendi wins, hands down!
    (with Prof. Goss coming in a close second.)
