The Tattler Guide To Successful Voting

It's Weds morning. Look at who you just woke up with.
Nobody wants to fail as a voter. As it is with everything else in life, it's important to succeed when you cast your ballot. You must vote to win. It is an extension of your power as one of the people. It's who you are.

And look at it this way. How are you going to feel if you wake up on Wednesday morning and the naked guy in the hammock with the glow on and the beer in his hand turns out to have won a seat on your City Council? Would you personally be able to bear up under the ignominy of having helped to send him there? Do you really want to live in what would be the laughingstock of the San Gabriel Valley? Nobody ever would. Vote successfully. The consequences of doing otherwise are not all that good.

The Tattler loves its charts
If you care to know why Measure UUT is the fraud that it is, all you need to do is revel in the wisdom of the following charts. We posted these over the course of the last six weeks, but here they are all in one happy place. If you know anybody on the fence about our double digit and highest in the state utility taxes, show them these beauties. I took them door to door and even the most adamant pro-tax nut began to question their beliefs after viewing them. They're magic charts.

         We pay ridiculously expensive health plan costs for select city workers

               At 10% we pay some of the highest utility tax rates in California

Select Sierra Madre employees have the most expensive health plans in California

          Sierra Madre is taxed on all UUT categories. Very few cities do that.

Measure UUT really is a tax increase. If you find this hard to believe, seek help.

  2. Great column this morning, John Crawford. Thank you and all posters /readers on the Tattler. We just might win this one today. I know everyone of our loyal readers will vote NO. Thanks to all of you Tatts.

  3. Thanks to the Tattler for all you did this election cycle. I hope the residents care as much about Sierra Madre as the Tattler does. I should say that I'm sure many of the residents who end up voting Yes on the UUT do so because they were not informed enough to see through the scare tactics. Those are the people we want to reach. The true believers like Walsh, Moran and that crowd have different motives for voting Yes.

  4. Noah on the city council would make us a bad joke. Then again, so would Goss.

    I am urging a vote for Noah over Goss.

    Goss brags about the fact that he is a public employee married to a public employee union member. Just think how tough he is going to be at the negotiating table. Which is why he is endorsed by the teacher's union and why he has no doubt taken non public union donations from a bunch of public employee union members.

    This is a real impact. In contrast, Noah behaving as all gringos do south of the border is kid's stuff. So I am backing the naked guy drinking Schlitz.

    1. Sorry, "Lesser of Two Evils," but Noah is a creepy carpetbagger with no morals or respect for the constitution. The Green's definitely bring a new layer of smut to our town. And I am rather fond of my guns, Noah Green, so I wouldn't even consider voting for some power tripping, narcissistic candidate who advocates eliminating guns.

    2. My 3rd vote was a write in for Neil the Pig.

      Delete
    3. Neil says if elected, he will not serve.

      Delete
    4. Neil only said that because he didn't want to be served

    2. A pig, a punk and a patsy. Plus a 25% tax hike. Thank God you're going to lose.

    3. Dancin Nancy hates Delmar

      Delete
    4. Nancy prefers the bowing and scraping of city staff.

      Delete
    5. "That is a GREAT idea, Nancy!"

      Delete
    6. Almost as good an idea as turning park restrooms into storage space.

      Buh-bye, Nancy Walsh!

  8. Two questions: Where did all the "Stop Monastery Housing Project" signs go? Two are missing from my yard. Why are there "Arizmendi" signs in Pasadena? I hope this doesn't have to do with the Alverno project. any ideas?

    1. Divine intervention?

      Delete
    2. The signs could be there because Rachelle wants Sierra madre voters to see them as they drive down Michillinda. Just a guess.

      Delete
    3. Why is the YES crowd still stealing NO signs? To quote Mayor Nancy Walsh: "Because we can!"

      Delete
  9. Regardless of how things turn out, all those fighting the good fight owe a debt of gratitude for all the work John Crawford and the Tattler did to educate voters and put a spot light on on the darker side of things.
    Thank you!

  10. A small pickup truck just pulled up to my house two Hispanic men got out and took my Delmar and Arizmendi signs. They will stop at nothing to skew the election even at this late hour.

    1. I have previously worked for candidates who insisted their campaign signs be removed immediately after the election (before the next morning). I'm inclined to believe that perhaps what you witnessed was not vandalism but good campaign practice.

    2. I agree. Though I do hate to see my signs go.
