Is Roger Chandler Running A Racially Divisive Campaign? Plus: Bob Harbicht is back from Hawaii and very upset about his campaign signs disappearing

There have been some complaints about racial insensitivity. These coming from people who are supporting the campaigns of Bob Harbicht and Roger Chandler. Which is kind of odd if you think about it since these are two of the most caucasian looking dudes I have ever seen. Maybe it is a form of white on white animosity that I wasn't aware had fallen into disfavor. Maybe not. We are talking about Arcadia politics here, so I guess that anything goes. Whether you like it or you don't.

So in the spirit of the hyper-racial sensitivity that consumes so much of our political discourse in these troubled times, I thought I would discuss a fairly recent mailer sent out on the behalf of Roger Chandler's current City Council campaign. I have reproduced the full thing here in two parts for easy reference. I am also including this translation for you to review as well, which I have lightly edited for brevity. Trust me, it's for your own good.

Dear Arcadia NeighborsOne year has passed very smoothly.  For many years things have gone smoothly.  But now, Arcadia housing is getting worse, burglaries are getting worse.  Hopefully things can change this year.

The reason our housing prices are down and burglaries are increasing is because of the group with Tom Beck as its leader.  This group is specifically suppressing the Chinese community.  The friend of the Chinese, Roger Chandler, is in the minority and Tom Beck is in the majority.  Every time Roger Chandler wants to increase police and Sho Tay votes for it, the majority led by Tom suppresses it.

Now Roger Chandler is running for re-election. People have to vote for him.  Only if we vote him back in will we be able to increase the police force and protect property.

The other 2 candidates, they are not real competitors.  The 1st Joyce Platt has 30 years as a teacher.  She wants historic preservation, does not want to increase police and wants HOAs.

Jolly Wu is disabled and a selfish person.  She is working hard only for her own good.  She took the right of the students to take dial a ride away from the students.  She did this because she is disabled and wants the dial a ride for herself. Those 2 people don't have management experience.  They are very suspicious.  Some organization put Joyce and Jolly in District 5They are not what our city needs. They will not protect our city. 

Jolly Wu is controlled by a special group.  She is a puppet meant to divide the Asians.

Many of these charges are untrue and we have dismissed them before. As an example, the Dial-A-Ride situation described here was actually the doings of Roger Chandler himself. Click here for a Pasadena Star News articles that shares all the unhappy details.

But here is my question for you today, thoughtful people who read my blog. Is it really proper for Roger Chandler's campaign to be issuing such troubling and derogatory commentary regarding both Jolly Wu's ethnicity and her disability? I thought we were well past that kind of ugly discourse.

Bulldozer Bob is pitching a fit over the theft of his campaign signs

Apparently Mr. Harbicht is back from campaigning in Hawaii and is ready to take on what for him is a big issue. That being the theft of his campaign signs. Now stealing lawn signs is kind of dumb, and it really does make you look like an idiot. Especially if you are videotaped doing it. But that being said, here is The Bulldozer venting in a fierce sort of way on his Facebook page.


A little on the dramatic side, but I think you get his point. Besides, when you really don't have very much else to say, you might as well get your Bobby Blowhard on about lawn signs and the sacred foundations of American democracy. Or some such thing.

This caused several people to comment, including Arcadia City Councilwoman April Verlato. She had experienced something similar in 2016, back when she was beating Harbicht like a pair of bongos in that election. Here is how her remarks went.


In case you were not aware, this is what Councilwoman Verlato was referring to here.


So how did Bob Harbicht, that clarion of liberty and defender of campaign lawn signs, react to April's comment? He deleted her post from his Facebook page, of course.


So let's see if I have this straight. Stealing lawn signs is an assault on our American freedom of speech, but deleting related commentary you don't like from your campaign Facebook page is just super fine and dandy?

Maybe Bob should have stayed in Hawaii and practiced his hypocrisy on the Manta Rays instead.

  1. Is there really any evidence that Beck ever voted against more police or what the morons are trying to say in that illiterate letter?
    Of course, if anyone challenged Chandler on it in person tonight at the CC council meeting, Chandler would deny he has any involvement, the liar he is. Sit there with his stupid look of surprise.
    Good for April to confront these fools.

  2. Don’t fret folks, the right election results will occur, just like 2016, the correct candidate (April Verlato) won, with Harbicht losing. Arcadia residents are smart and see beyond the lies that Tay, Harbicht and Chandler say.
    Tonight will be Chandlers last CC meeting.

    1. I won't go that far and I hope you are not bringing back McCarthyism to this country.

      Here is some history:

      A market economy is an economic system in which individuals own most of the resources -land, labor, and capital - and control their use through voluntary decisions made in the marketplace. It is a system in which the government plays a small role. In this type of economy, two forces - self-interest and competition - play a very important role. The role of self interest and competition was described by economist Adam Smith over 200 years ago and still serves as foundational to our understanding of how market economies function.

      Self Interest is the motivator of economic activity.

      Why do you go to work? Why do you go to school? There may be many reasons, but at their core you probably go to work and school because you are self-interested. To be self-interested simply means that you seek your own personal gain. You go to work because you want to get paid so you can buy the things you want. You go to school so you can get a better job someday and earn more money to buy the things you want. In fact, most of the economic activity we see around us is the result of self-interested behavior. Adam Smith described it this way in his book, The Wealth of Nations:

      "It is not from the benevolence (kindness) of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest."

      So why does the baker choose to bake? The answer is self-interest. The baker wants to earn enough money to feed his family and buy the things he wants and the most effective way he has found to do that is to bake bread for you. In fact his bread has to be good enough and the service friendly enough that you are willing to give up your money freely in exchange for his bread. The baker while serving his self-interest has produced a good that is very valuable to you. The miracle of a market system is that self-interest produces behavior that benefits others.

      Is being self-interested greedy? Is it immoral? While the term self-interest has negative connotations, it does not necessarily imply greedy or immoral behavior. Self-interest just means that you seek your goals. In fact, your self-interest might lead you to study hard for your math test, give money to your favorite charity or volunteer at a local school.

How can April, in good conscience, say this is a Harbicht supporter? I understand that she wants to support her buddy Tom Beck, but to make a baseless accusation like this shows a wanton disregard for the truth and reveals a lack ethical behavior on her part. Shameful!

I certainly would not use it to accuse someone of something I couldn't substantiate! If I were April, I would try to remember that was me that started this kind of behavior back in 2016.

    12. 8:36, it was a Harbicht supporter who hung that red crossed out sign on his “for sale sign” post! He was told to take it down, and it went down for a short time, then it went back up. The sign was placed illegally (displayed too high). They guy and his family have since moved out of Arcadia. Am I allowed to post his name for all to know? Oh, and this person showed up and spoke at city council meetings during public comments with his signs in tow, proudly announcing what he was doing. Shameful, indeed.

      Delete
    13. 8:36am The sign was in my neighbor John MacDonnell's yard. The picture that the Tattler is using doesn't show it, but there were 2 Harbicht signs in his yard as well. John MacDonnell was quite proud of his artwork and brought it to a City Council meeting to show everyone. He was vocal about his opposition of Measure A (repeal the UUT) and me. He was very vocal about his support of Harbicht. Peter Amundson went to John and asked him to remove the sign or remove Peter's signs as he did not want to be associated with it. John refused. Harbicht didn't even send me an email to apologize. I wouldn't have commented on Harbicht's post about the vandalization of his signs except for the fact that he demands some sort of apology from the person "and the organization behind this horrendous crime". I find his sentiment disingenuous when people need to apologize only when his signs are vandalized. And instead of apologizing for what had happened to me back in 2016, he removed my comment. I think that in and of itself shows what kind of person Harbicht is.

      I am sorry that someone vandalized Harbicht's signs. I think it is petty. I am willing to pay Harbicht the cost of the signs that were vandalized which is about $8 for 4 signs. I hope we can all put this yard sign business behind us and get down to more important issues facing the City, like development of the corner of Live Oak and Santa Anita which is on the City Council's agenda tonight.

    15. I had to drive past John MacDonnell's yard several times a week and see his hateful display. It was his right to do so but spoke loudly as to his ethics and character. Sad but even worse to see candidates resort to racial baiting and for getting their knickers in a twist over signs. While it is wrong to tamper with signs we have much bigger challenges. Harbicht and Chandler have sold out to special interests and they are desperate to win. Let's boot the whole lot OUT!

    16. The bottom line here is that these two people took Harbicht's signs. Is it your position that he should not be angry or upset about it because it happened to you Ms. Verlato? Is he blaming you like you are blaming him for the loss of your sign? It was clear who took and vandalized your sign yet you are trying to spead blame to Harbicht with no proof. Did Haebicht say or imply that it was you that took his signs? Why are you defending these thieves by trying to change the narrative to make Harbicht the bad guy here. "The lady doth protest too much, methinks."

  10. 7:23am

    On the same council meeting, Sho Tay did not stand up and condemn the vicious spear campaign running against Jolly Wu. It is no secret that Tay supports Chandlers. In fact Tay on the cc meeting said that making personal attacks on candidates are part of politicking. He insinuated that candidate should not run for public office if they could not take personal attacks and public scrutiny. He cited John Wuo, the previous cc resigned under public scandals, and comparing it with the current character assassination smear campaign running against Jolly Wu. When Chandler’s minions attacking her physical disability is a hate crime and should never be tolerated and should never be taken lightly especially from a sitting council member Sho Tay, who is an elected civic leader in our community.

    Hate crime laws in the United States are state and federal laws intended to protect against hate crimes (also known as bias crimes) motivated by enmity or animus against a protected class of persons. Although state laws vary, current statutes permit federal prosecution of hate crimes committed on the basis of a person's protected characteristics of race, religion, ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, and disability.

By mobilizing people to go to the cc meeting, they are hoping for an election victory like their winning of the purple district map.

    Too bad for them, many of their misinformed followers are not voters. Most voters, on the other hand, are fluent in English and are much less likely to be fooled by them.

He will become another Chandler-like Chameleon in Arcadia that will do anything to enrich himself, his families, cronies and special interest groups. The facts speak for itself that he has divided the Chinese voters against each other in District 5. This election is all about money catering to the demands of developers and APOA by endorsing Chandler to the CC seat.

      For someone like Tay deliberately misinforming the Chinese voters that he is a former police officer (when he was a volunteer) and saying that he, along with Chandler, is serious about reducing crime rate in Arcadia is laughable when crime rate went up during their CC tenure.

  19. The attack on Jolly Wu’s physical disability is overwhelming since the start of Jan 2018. It was published in print and on the online Chinese language newspapers. The main focus on these attacks is to tell Chinese voters that Jolly was not qualify to run for City Council because she is a “useless cripple” in a wheelchair. The propaganda is to tell the Chinese voters that Jolly is useless person because she is a cripple.

    Words have different meaning (connotation) other than its literal meaning. This is true for the English language as well as in the Chinese language. Certain Chinese words cannot be fully translated to English based on its literal meaning. For example, the Chinese word to describe a physical disability person has its literal meaning as well as its negative connotation depending on the context of the speech. The Chinese word for physically disabled person, when used in certain context, it implies a useless cripple person.

    In the beginning of March to mid-March, the door to door Chandler campaign volunteers used the same attack about Jolly’s physical disability to the District 5 voters. These Chandler volunteers repeatedly harassed Jolly’s supporters that displayed her campaign yard signs outside their homes by convincing them to remove it and replace it with the Chandler’s yard signs. They told Jolly’s supporters that she is a useless cripple on a wheelchair who can't take care of herself therefore how could she represent and help you when she is elected to the City Council. How could voters support a person who can't even help herself because she is a cripple.

    Jolly Wu’s supporters who were being constantly harassed and bombarded by Chandler’s door to door hate crime and character assassination speeches. Jolly’s supporters were disgusted by these types of hate speeches encouraged Jolly to bring this up to the City Council meeting on 3/6/2018. For those who don’t know, discrimination of people with disabilities is a hate crime in the USA and other countries such as the United Kingdom.

  30. CHADNDER, SHO-TAY AND ACARDIA CITY HALL CONNECTION
    (A very Noir-like event)

    You hear the word “collusion” a lot these days involving the Trump’s Russian connection that is played out in the media regarding the appointment of a special counsel to investigate the Russian meddling in the 2016 election and possible collusion of the US President and Moscow.

    I heard of another kind of possible collusion that is happening in your backyard in Arcadia.

    Within half-hour before submitting the City Council candidate’s filing papers to the Elections Official, a mysterious Chinese woman called Jolly Wu trying very hard to persuade her from running against the all powerful incumbent council Chandler. The “all powerful Chandler”. Yes, those were the words she used to describe him.

    This woman, goes by the name Angela and refused to give out her last name and declined for a face-to-face meeting with Jolly Wu. Who is this mysterious woman? And who does she work for? Who leaked to her about Jolly’s filling of papers just half-hour before submitting it to the Election Official? How did this mysterious woman obtained Jolly Wu’s private phone number that is only given to people on a need-to-know-basis? (e.g., City Council members and certain key City staff personnel, immediate family members, close friends, etc.). So mysterious and noirish! Don't you think?

    There is another event that I heard that is very disturbing. It is about how self-interest groups or individuals employing many tactics to impede the candidates from running a successful campaign against other candidates that they favored or endorsed. But I will not talk about it here. Perhaps someday I will reveal it when I moved out of Arcadia.

We also believe that District 5 development restriction should be decided by the majority of residents living in District 5, and not to be decided the City Council majority.

    We and many others voted for Jolly Wu because we believe that she is the only candidate that can help District 5 residents to the aforementioned issues. We were also very impressed that she is the only candidate running a campaign that is truly self-funded, and not influenced by other self-interest parties.

    1. YES vote for Jolly Wu. She has integrity, has incredible critical thinking skills and is not beholden to any clubs or organizations (Woman's Club, Historical Club, Travel Club) and has not received money from people and political action groups outside of her District 5. Vote for Jolly by golly; you won't be sorry!

      Are you making light of the fact that Jolly Wu has not received money from individuals and organizations?

    3. 8:01,
      Are you having problem with people that are invited to speak at clubs? Is that your beef?

    5. Go ahead 8:01... continue to be a sucker and let Chandler and Tay take you to the cleaners. Sell your brain to someone that actually uses it...

  32. Just finished watching the Acadia CC meeting tonight.
    It's amazing that the Chandler/Tay minions don't follow rules again and again by deliberately arriving late and insisted on CC members to allow them more time for public comment.
    Now they are at the public forum playing the victim card. These talking-heads sanctimoniously said that their candidates are the receiving end of a smear campaign when in fact they are the one who started a vicious smear campaign against candidate Jolly Wu in the Chinese language media and mailers.

    1. Good report. Here are some photos of Sho Tay's special interest group members at tonight's cc meeting, posted on a FB page created by Mr. Andy Chen:

      Some of those members are very good at shutting up people with opposing opinions in Chinese. Mr. Andy Chen's job is to perform similar tasks on English media. You can find more info about him on Linked and FB:

    2. It shows on his Linked profile that Mr. Andy Chen is an advisor to XPOWER Manufacture Inc, which makes Air Movers, Blower Fans, and Dryers. He is also the CEO for WORLDCOMM CENTER CORP, which is a Pregnancy Care Center in Arcadia: https://www.facebook.com/Worldcomm18/

      No wonder he supports developers and McMansions.

  33. THE SPECIAL INTERST FORMULA: C+T=D+$

    (Chandler + Tay) = (Developers + $Profit)

    C=Chandler
    T=Tay
    D=Developers
    $=Developers profits

  34. Love Harbicht's latest mailer (courtesy of Arcadian's Rights Protection Association) complaining about the supposedly stolen yard signs. It's super funny that the Chinese language part is not a direct translation of the English part (or vice versa). Chinese part mentions both April Verlado (sic) and Brett Mitulski while the English version leaves them out. The English text is atrocious in its grammar and usage. Sentence fragments, missing articles, and strange verb tenses as far as the eye can see. It even calls out The Tattler!!!
