Not done with local elections

Hang on to your punch cards. Two more elections are coming your way very shortly.

People of Monrovia need to get read to vote on Tuesday, April 14. Contested races include the mayor’s seat and the race for two city council seats.

I was in Monrovia Friday for the Family Festival and saw a bunch of supporters for Becky Shevlin holding signs at the corner of Mayflower Avenue and Huntington Drive. That’s the spirit!

Signs for Kirby, Garcia and Lutz were all over Myrtle Avenue shops. People should send in their letters to the editor before Saturday.

The Arcadia Unified School District is having an election the following week, Tuesday, April 21. There are three candidates running for two school board seats.

And then, all state voters must vote on May 19 for statewide ballot measures that, among other things, keep the fragile budget deal in place.

See you at the polls.

If I missed any upcoming election, do post a comment. We, too, are getting a bit election weary. Democracy takes work.

About Steve Scauzillo

I love journalism. I've been working in journalism for 32 years. I love communicating and now, that includes writing about environment, transportation and the foothill/Puente Hills communities of Hacienda Heights, Rowland Heights, Walnut and Diamond Bar. I write a couple of columns, one on fridays in Opinion and the other, The Green Way, in the main news section. Send me ideas for stories. Or comments. I was opinion page editor for 12 years so I enjoy a good opinion now and then.
