Dear Supporters: We are very excited to announce that the three incumbent candidates endorsed by Preserve Sierra Madre were re-elected to the Sierra Madre City Council following last night's resounding election victory!
Our congratulations go out to out-going Mayor Rachelle Arizmendi, Mayor Pro-Tem Denise Delmar and former Mayor Gene Goss. They all ran a great campaign and all their hard work and effort paid off in a resounding win.
Please join us on Tuesday, April 24th at 6:30 pm at the next City Council meeting to congratulate the three candidates and witness the formal installation of the new Mayor. It should be an exciting evening.
Our motto from the beginning was "why break up a good thing" and the voters saw fit to keep this City Council intact to continue their great work on behalf of all the residents of Sierra Madre.
Finally, a big thank you to all of our supporters who answered the call with your willingness to help make this result come to pass. You walked, you called, you allowed signs to be put up and most importantly, you voted!
Thank you for making a difference. As always we appreciate your support.

The City of Arcadia's strangely underwhelming response to possible voter fraud
Mod: You'd think that with the unofficial vote margin between Joyce Platt and Roger Chandler being razor thin this would be a matter of greater urgency than it apparently is for Arcadia City Hall. Check out this email sequence. The first has to do with the suspected sudden population explosion at disgraced former Mayor John Wuo's house.
Arcadia's large remaining uncounted vote
Mod: There is a big article in today's edition of the Arcadia Weekly about Tuesday's election (link). Here is a part that jumps out.
Over in District 5, incumbent candidate Roger Chandler is barely ahead of first-time candidate and former school teacher Joyce Platt. In third place at last check was first-time candidate and self-funded pharmacist Jolly Wu. At 8:54 p.m. on Tuesday, Chandler had 704 votes, Platt held 659 votes and Wu had 264 votes.
However, the election is not yet over. Mailed ballots sent by Arcadians are still being accepted and counted, so long as they contain a postage stamp prior to April 10 and are received by April 13. The City Clerk’s office estimates around 500 votes have still not been counted, including expected mail-in ballots.
Mod: With this high number of uncounted votes, plus the now emerging story of possible voter fraud in District 5, Chandler's unofficial 45 vote lead could quickly evaporate over the next few days. Big story developing, peacock pals.
