The Arcadia City Council Districting Election Process: Was It Really Just About Mansionization All Along?

I find it quite curious that back in July 2017, the City of Arcadia was facing a rather rancorous lawsuit over the lack of Asian representation on its City Council. Yet today the remedy is having very little effect, and some of those it was supposed to benefit are behaving in the strangest manner. I'm not sure anyone would have seen this coming.

City Council Candidate Jolly Wu
In a report by KPCC on July 31, 2017 titled "Arcadia among latest to switch to council district elections but not everyone's happy" (link), a resident of Arcadia expressed his disappointment with the ethnic make-up of the Arcadia City Council:

At a busy Chinese restaurant in Arcadia last week, Zig Jiang ordered dim sum and talked about the change coming to the council elections. It was a Chinese-American organization he belongs to that first threatened to sue the city.

Jiang said there’s a similarity between politics and food — what you know is often tied to your culture. "Just like eating Chinese food. Only Chinese know how to eat their own food," he said. Jiang feels the same way about Arcadia’s City Council.

"More Asians to be elected they'll be good because they know what we think," Jiang said. Although Arcadia's population is about 60 percent Asian, only one member of the council, Sho Tay, is Asian. Jiang wants to see more Asians elected to the council.

But this certainly wasn’t the first time that the issue of a lack of Asian representation on Arcadia’s City Council had been raised. This from nearly eight years ago:

Los Angeles Daily News, April 18, 2010: "Arcadia City Council loses its diversity" (link): Realtor Lawrena Chang admits she’s disappointed. Not one of the three Chinese-American candidates she voted for garnered enough votes to win one of the three open City Council seats in Tuesday’s election. With the departure of Mayor John Wuo, who was the second Chinese-American to be elected to the council, the ethnically mixed city is reverting to an all Caucasian council for the first time in 12 years.

“They are the same race. They know what we need more,” Chang said of the Chinese-American candidates she voted for while having dinner at Arcadia Garden Cafe this week. “They understand us more. I think it’s important.”

Businessman Sho Tay, Attorney Paul P. Cheng and Attorney Jason J. Lee were defeated this week by three familiar faces; Councilman Bob Harbicht, who will be serving a fifth four-year term, former councilman Mickey Segal, who will be serving his third term, and Councilman Peter Amundson, who is serving his second.

This will also be the third term in a row that the council will not include a woman.

Having read all that, wouldn't you think that the first Chinese-American woman running for an Arcadia City Council seat would be a cause for some celebration, and that the Asian community would rally together and get her elected? Jolly Wu, who is running for City Council in District 5, would certainly be just that candidate. But sadly this does not appear to be the case, at least so far.

The Chinese media, along with the Mayor ProTem, Sho Tay, seem to have blinders on and are doing the very opposite of what they had proclaimed was the purpose of districting. They are supporting the very same old, omnipresent white guys they once hoped to replace by going to this more geographically diverse form of representation.

In the World Journal: "Arcadia Council Election, Asians Do Not Be 'Unknown'" (link), written by Zhang Hong on March 01, 2018, the reporter doesn’t even mention that Candidate Jolly Wu is running against the old school incumbent, Roger Chandler. The entire article is about how Asians need to vote for career perpetual politician Chandler, the candidate they now claim will be the best representative for the Asian community in Arcadia.

In an especially mean-spirited diatribe appearing in a recent edition of the Chinese News USA, titled: "Residents In Arcadia Issued An Appeal Calling For Support For Bob Harbicht and Roger Chandler" (link), Jolly Wu is called "a banana," a derogatory term used to mean that she is "yellow on the outside, but white on the inside." In this classic example of reverse race-baiting, they portray her as a sell out to whites. The article also claims she is a plant by City Councilmembers April Verlato and Tom Beck meant to split the Chinese vote.

So much for bringing all of the people of Arcadia together.

Recently a Chinese language mailer was sent out in District 5 to residents with Asian surnames only. In this bizarre political hit piece Jolly Wu is described as being selfish because she somehow kicked all of the students off the Dial-A-Ride so she could have it to herself. This because she is "guilty" of being in a wheelchair.

This accusation is patently untrue. Ironically, and as reported on January 24, 2016 in the Pasadena Star News: "Arcadia students use of city’s Dial-A-Ride leaving seniors stranded" (link), it was Roger Chandler himself who said that kids need to be prevented from using the Dial-A-Ride. Jolly Wu wasn’t present at the meeting where this decision was made, nor did she have a City Council vote to make it happen.

 “This was never intended as a school bus service and it’s clearly outside of the regulations for receiving the funds,” Councilman Roger Chandler told the Star-News. “Quite frankly, I suppose if we were audited, we would get nicked."

From everything that I have seen and read about Jolly Wu, she seems like a pleasant, intelligent and highly qualified candidate for Arcadia City Council. I have spoken with her at length on the phone, and I came away from our conversations being very impressed by the depth of her knowledge and passion for Arcadia.

In 2001, Jolly was able to raise $1 million dollars for the LA County Arboretum towards making it more handicapped accessible. It is extremely difficult to believe that so committed a person would be, in 2018, grotesquely attacked over her disability.

It would seem intuitive that the Chinese community in Arcadia would fully support so productive a member of society. So why such mean words in the Chinese language media? Why is Sho Tay backing Roger Chandler over the only Asian candidate running for a seat on Arcadia’s City Council this year? Especially when he had been so adamant about proclaiming a need for districting?

Maybe you, our kind and often indulgent readers, can help answer these perplexing questions?
__________________________________________________________________

More: At the last Arcadia City Council meeting The Tattler was treated like a celebrity. We were mentioned several times by the speakers during public comment, which is always nice. Thank you to all the readers who have made The Tattler such a hit in Arcadia.

I have always believed that criticism from those with opposing viewpoints means that we are on the right track. Exposing the truth can get messy, you know. And look, if somehow we've harshed on your mellow and upset you, please, kindly remember the Tattler motto: “If you don’t like it, don’t read it.”

In other words, you should go and get your news elsewhere.

One more item. Anyone wishing to find out more information about the candidacy of Jolly Wu can visit her website at https://votejollywu.com.

    1. In the following link, it says that Chinese News USA (aka NewsAgencyAmerica.com) was founded by the same founder and team members who founded Chinese Daily USA in 2009:

      http://www.chinesenewsusa.com/page/show-136.html

      Tay was the owner of Chinese Daily USA back in 2015. See the old Tattler post about it here:

      http://sierramadretattler.blogspot.com/2015/08/chinese-daily-usa-is-publication-owned.html

      So apparently Sho Tay just got rid of Chinese Daily USA and replaced it with Chinese News USA (aka NewsAgencyAmerica.com), maybe due to the above Tattler post.

      This is why that article in the recent edition of Chinese News USA is so mean-spirited.

How can the "Asians" attend a Dodgers Baseball Game? It is an American past time and hot dogs are mainly sold for consumption, "Asians" don't know how to eat American food!

  12. I would like to give making Arboretum more accessible for physical hardship people to the county supervisors. All I did was bringing my discovery to the county park and recreation department. I would like to use this opportunity to thanks all the county supervisors to support and voted to make Arboretum more accessible and provided more than 1.03 million dollars in 2003 and 2004 to complete the projects. In addition, I would like to thank the county park and recreation director, supervisors, and staffs who assisted me for the survey of the entire arboretum and attended meetings with me during the several years of making Arboretum more accessible and friendly to the visitors. Moreover,a special thanks need to be given to Juan Benitez at Los Angeles county Parks and Recreation who passed away before the whole project completed. He was the person who oversee the whole processing at county park and recreation. Finally, I should thanks our great Arboretum CEO Richard Schulhof and Tim Gallagher Co-Chairs for the passed several years assisted me continue in making Arboretum more accessible and great for family visiting. Without all of your help, the Arboretum can not be a place of joy, learning, and accessible to everyone.
    Hopefully, some of you after reading my above comments will visit the Arboretum more. Overall, it is a place that bring me so much joy and peace. If anyone would like to be part of making Juan Benitez's Aboretum bench become true, please contact the great Arboretum CEO, Richard Schulhof.

    6. 5:17, My point is simple. whether she can write a simple sentence or not, Jolly Wu is not capable of being on a council. I've held discussions with her and she does not have the ability to make rational or common sense decisions for an entire city. With that said, I'm not saying that Chandler is the right person either. BTW, I'm sure I could write something in Taiwan that makes absolute sense because computers are pretty amazing these days. It's called grammar/spelling check. This new concept is actually pretty amazing. People have been using these tools for over 15 years now. I can recommend about 10 different tools to help if needed. And for 4:53 - Here are a list of the top schools for political science. Or did you not know that were actually schools that offer classes and majors for people who want to be Politicians?

If anyone dares to oppose him, he could sentence that person to a horrible death. He can't control Jolly. Of course, he will do whatever he could, legally, on character assassination on Jolly. It is so predictable! I bet that Jolly speaks way better English than Sho! If 'banana' is all Sho can say about Jolly, this is really bad! It tells me that he is out of any ideas! Jolly is truly good! Banana is actually more of a compliments to Jolly in my point of views. It tells me that Jolly could bridge different thinkings to bring agreements which Sho has failed miserably. If Sho is reading my post, he is probably calling my post as I am a 'racist' whom is against him. Except, I am Asian. He can't call me racist. I am just a prejudice against a really bad man like him.

      Voters need to be informed with true facts before deciding who they will vote to represent their districts for the next 4 years. If you and others are really sincere and a truth seeker then visit her campaign website to learn about her platform on improving lives and communities in Arcadia.

    6. CHANGES TAKE ACTION!

      PLEASE VOTE FOR JOLLY WU FOR THE DISTRICT 5 CITY COUNCIL SEAT.

      Arcadians deserve a leader that leads and represents their interest, and not listen to the special interest groups.

      Here are the reasons why I and others will vote for Jolly Wu for the District 5 City Council Seat:

      1.She is the only candidate who runs a fully self-funded campaign
      2. She will owe no one nor any self interest groups. Can any other candidates say that?
      3. She runs a positive message campaign
      4. She has been quietly serving our community since moving to Arcadia 18 years ago
      5. She really cares about her neighbors and community
      6. She is intelligent and thoughtful
      7. She is responsible and will act in the best interest for the people in her district
