Rosemead election heats up

We’re just a couple of weeks away from the March elections. Here is the latest out of Rosemead. Six are vying for three seats.

The candidates are incumbents Margaret Clark, John Nunez and John Tran, and challengers Sandra Armenta, Henry Lo and Steven Ly. Among the top issues are amending the recently-approved General Plan, reducing crime and graffiti, and spending city reserves to improve services.

  • http://www.saveourcommunity.us Todd Kunioka

    I’ve got a long post and a faq on the new general plan here: http://www.saveourcommunity.us/?q=node/962

    The short version is that the new general plan is a dramatic improvement over the old plan (the one Clark and her running mates want to go back to). We’ve reduced allowable density on commercial areas by 50%. We’ve also designated many of the areas that had been commercial as mixed use. At build out, the new plan will allow a total of 14 million square feet of industrial and commercial uses in our city.

    By contrast, the old would have allowed about 42 million square feet of commercial and industrial uses. That’s three times the total, so you can imagine how much worse traffic would be under he old plan versus the new one.

    We’ve also reduced the pressure for increased density in the R1 and R2 areas by planning for future population growth in the mixed use corridors.

    Some people falsely think that the city’s population wouldn’t grow if we stayed with the old plan. They’re wrong. The old plan forecasted a build-out population of about 50,000. We’re already about 20% beyond that. Given another 20 years under the old plan, you can be sure there’d a be a lot more knocked downs, mansionization, and subdivisions in the R1 and R2 areas. Population growth would continue as it has in the past, to a point comparable to what would eventually happen under the new general plan. The difference is the old plan would also allow a much higher commercial and industrial intensity, and that’s where the real traffic problems come from.

    Basically, the old plan would guarantee the worst of all possible worlds: increased population, increased mansionization, increased density in residential areas, and increased commercial density. There’s no good policy reason to switch back to the old general plan unless you actually want all those bad outcomes to come to Rosemead.

    Voters need to look up Henry Lo’s name. I can’t believe the bad things written about him. But I guess the truth is the truth. What a bad candidate. How did he make it on the school board is beyond me! He won’t get our votes.

  • El Gato Malo

    Yeah, who wants a city council member that helped build new gymnasiums in the Garvey School District? Who wants additional sports and recreation opportunities for our youth in Rosemead? Who wants a school board member that helped modernize classrooms in Rosemead? Who wants a school board member that served as a field rep to former Senate Majority Leader Gloria Romero for ten years? Connections? Building coalitions? Who needs it?

    Not me! So I’m going to join anonymous in voting for the other guys. Yeah! Mediocre people deserve representation, too! Let’s push Rosemead back into the 20th Century! Woo-hoo!

  • Gotta Luv Henry Lo

    Henry loves our community. He’s done alot of good stuff for our kids here in Rosemead. Awesome school board member who’s proven where his heart is. He’s got my vote and my familys.

  • Gotta Luv Henry Lo

    Henry loves our community. He’s done alot of good stuff for our kids here in Rosemead. Awesome school board member who’s proven where his heart is. He’s got my vote and my familys.

  • Wake Up Rosemead!

    Henry Lo ought to be a shoe-in. The more you hear about his opponents, the more you think he’s gotta win: Armenta wants to cut COPS (Community Oriented Policing Strategies) in Rosemead. Ly wants to impose a new tax on Rosemead businesses. Clark wants to adopt a general plan that would allow triple the commercial and industrial development of the current plan.

    Why would anyone vote for those other guys? Henry Lo, all the way!

  • The Truth

    A vote for Maggie Clark and anyone else besides two of the three amigos is the right thing to do. Get rid of at least two of the three amigos if you want the best for Rosemead. The three amigos are a joke and with them goes the city of Rosemead.

    Yes, thanks for all that evidence to support your position, Pravda.

    John Nunez has cost the city of Rosemead a lot of money. This man should be run out of town. He has no shame what’s so ever. You don’t “settle out of court” if there was no crime committed. Where there is smoke there is fire. Clearly he was involved in a dispicable act. He is not fit to be re-elected at all. This kind of politician brings nothing but shame to our city. Oust this man.

  • Anonymous

    Maggie Clark is a great councilmember and should be re elected no problem. Shes been around a long time and knows her stuff. She loves her city and the residents. She is the only one not to embarass our community.

  • Not another puppet

    Since Henry Lo is doing such a fine job at
    Garvey USD. He should just stay there where he’s welcomed.
    Rosemed residents are tired of the “Yes Man Lackey”
    Tran administration and the last thing we need is another “Tran Puppet”.

  • Wake Up Rosemead

    Tran is the puppetier. Whatever he says is a go. He is too full of himself. Even the staff at city hall can count to 3. Nunez is a total loser. He definetly needs to hit the road.the city paid enough money for his “unprofessionalism.” Lo is too goffy and a total “air head.” He knocked at my door. I couldn’t shut him up. He did not impress me one bit. He did npt seem knowledgeable about any one thing.These three clowns should never serve on the city council.

  • The Truth

    Some anonymous fool states I need to provide facts, I don’t, the city record does that and the people should base their vote on that, not foolish supporters of the three amigos who consistently vote with each other on every issue and pander for votes, but not once do they consider budget cost and the good of the city. The three amigos would rather support their friends in business.

    There is enough public record to show how the three amigos are bad for Rosemead. Now vote on that.

    It will be a sad day if the three amigos continue to set Rosemead’s priorities. They have done enough damage. Get rid of them.

  • The Consequence

    Some anonymous fool can’t give a single good reason to vote for Clark, Armenta and Ly. No surprise there–between the three of them, there is not a single accomplishment they can claim as their own.

    Here are the facts: Crime in Rosemead is down. Graffiti response has improved. Our parks have better facilities. Our city has more activities. Our budget is balanced. We have a large reserve. Our taxes have NOT gone up, and no one from the progressive coalition of John Tran, John Nunez, Henry Lo, or Polly Lo wants that last part to change.

    Rosemead voters should reward the ones who have been doing good things for Rosemead (John Tran, John Nunez, Henry Lo and Polly Lo) and get rid of the one that hasn’t done squat.

  • Anonymous

    Why does Maggie have to rely on fearmongering to try to get reelected?

    Why does Rosemead Partners have to rely on phony “voter guides” to try to fool voters into thinking anyone outside of their little cabal of conspirators supports their issues?

    If “The Truth” was not impressed by Henry Lo, that’s probably a good thing. The only thing that impresses “The Truth” are lies: Threats of eminent domain? Higher taxes? Reducing COPS (Community Oriented Policing Strategies)? The only ones talking about doing any of those things are Clark and her little puppets.

    Henry Lo has spent the last ten years working to further the interests of our children, our environment and the working class people of Rosemead. That’s why he’s endorsed by teachers, firefighters, Sheriff’s Deputies, nurses, and environmentalists.

    Who’s endorsed the three dwarves that “The Truth” supports? Only themselves. How pathetic is that?

  • Mr. Gonzales

    It doesn’t matter what you, the supporters of Tran, Nunez and Lo say. Lo needs to go back to school. He can’t put a sentance together or express himself well enough. He is kind of weird. We desperately need educated councilmembers to operate the city. Tran thinks that he is it. Too stuck uo for me. He is only getting ready to run for the assembly. Nunez killed the city’s reputation. He has no ethics or morales, what’s so ever. These three clowns are a big fat joke.

  • Mr. Gonzalez

    I met Tran. He is stuck up. Talk about a “first impression.” He is only concerned about running for the assembly. I didn’t care for his mailers. It is all about him. He thinks that he did it all in Rosemead by himself. What an EGO!!! Lo is totally uneducated. He is kind of weird and foolish. He seems uneducated. He is not serious about being a council member. He needs to stay where he is at. Where ever that is. I too met him. Not a good impression at all. Nunez should be ashamed about even running for re-election. He has cost the city too much money. What a waste of staff time and attorney costs. We do not believe what Lo and his two co-horts are telling us. Ladies get real. We are not stupit like you seem to think. Polly get a life. You are more silly than Lo. Two peas in a pod.

  • Anonymous

    Oh, so now you’re “Mr Gonzalez,” huh?

    At the candidates forums, the only two candidates I saw who couldn’t put a sentence together were #1 and #6. #2 can put sentences together, but she is incapable of telling the truth.

    Your opponents support eminent domain? They want to get rid of Sheriff’s protection? They want to raise your taxes? That’s not anything any of your opponents are advocating (Well, except for taxes–your running mate does support a new business tax). Stop making up imaginary opponents and debate the ones who are actually on the ballot.

    Opposes 24-hour operation for the Wal-Mart Supercenter because it would be bad for Rosemead? (Then why did she vote to allow 24-hour operation in 2004?). Supported the Fourth of July Parade? (They why did she vote against it before she voted for it?). Supported the park trail? (By voting against it twice and sending out a mailer in opposition?).

    If only Maggie had accomplished something in the last fifteen years, she’d be able to stick to her record instead of relying on character assassination, lies, fearmngering and claiming the accomplishments of her opponents as her own. She should be ashamed of herself

  • Conscience

    Heard some conversation Why would any vote for Henry Lo? He is a puppet for Romero and does not have the City of Rosemeads interests at heart, pandering for pet projects for friends in high places. How can we get him elected? Ah, run with the three amigos; and fleece the city of all the Wal-Mart tax revenue for our friends projects, even though we dont support it. (But we will take the money) Include lying to the citizens of Rosemead about how the two other good council members have done nothing.

    Are the three amigos and the cronies that move their strings are in it for the money? Wasteful spending got this country in trouble and if the three amigos are elected, the same will continue to happen in Rosemead. Its simplefollow the money.

    Hearing its fear mongeringthat is what most representatives said about the U.S. economy four years ago. Not dispensing fear but the truththe three amigos have been bad for Rosemead and will continue to be. Maybe you should check their record, and while you are at it, check Maggie Clarks and stop making accusation that arent true, lying is your tactic.

    Why? Maggie disagrees with the three amigos and is she correct in doing so? Not falling in line with the political machine that the three amigos represent outside interests? Funny, recall accusations that Maggie was part of some political machine a few years ago, and look who truly owes the machine now. a few short years later and are the three amigos deeply in debt to it? Does anyone wonder how they will repay their friends?

  • The Truth

    The bad candidates are John Tran, John Nunez and Henry Lo. They care about outside interests who fleece the city.

    The good candidates are Maggie Clark, Steve Ly and Sandra Armenta. They care about Rosemead and their citizens

    Now vote for change!!!!!

  • Rosemead Resident

    Check out Tran’s, Lo’s and Nunez’s contributions. All outside interests. Developers of course. Rosemead is for sale after all. Warning to all the residents! If these three are elected ( God Forbide). More chicken slauger businesses will be approved. How unhealthy can that be? We all know good and well how many people die because of samanilla and other germs that poorly marketed chicken contains. Talk about a health issue for the entire city. Of course the 3 will make sure more go up around Rosemead. We are not a third world country! Our foods, especially meats, like chicken need to be approved by the US Department of Health. I fear for our city’s future. At least we have Clark that dares to address such “touchy issue.” She is the concious and voice of reason no matter how you look at it. I have been reading all the mailers. Some of you are desperate in getting her out no matter what! Your hit pieces will not work one bit. No address return or group who is sending out the pieces? Talk about being desperate and cowards. You all can’t fool us. It is envirent from whom these mean spirited, unethical hit pieces are coming from. Friends of the 3 desperate, unethical turkeys!
    You three are pathetic. You will not get our votes. Ever! the City of Rosemead deserves better!

  • The Truth

    Nice take Rosemead Resident. I hope the city has more residents like you…get out and spread the good word and down with the three amigos!

  • The Consequence

    Oh, Pravada, why do you keep posting under different names?

    Clark’s the biggest liar in the city’s history. She just keeps repeating her mindless mantra: they want to use eminent domain, they want higher taxes, they want to cut our sheriff’s protection. It’s really sad that uninformed people like Pravda just eat up this slop and regurgitate it as though it were The Truth. Instead, it’s just more Pravda.

    Hey, Pravda, how many cases of salmonella came from the chickens sold in Rosemead? How many cases of avian flu? Zero. Fearmonger.

    If Margaret Clark *really* thought the chickens were a health threat, why hasn’t she done anything to prepare? She’s had sixteen years to prepare.

    That’s the biggest reveal to her big lies: She says these are important issues, but she never does anything until it’s campaign time. Year after year she sits and collects her paycheck, all the while talking out of both sides of her mouth. She has done NOTHING that benefits our city. If she had, she and her friends wouldn’t have to rely on lies and slanders to try to keep her seat.

  • The Truth

    Who do you trust? Bruesh, Tran, Lo and Nunez. Keep spinning it Bob! The people will find out the money games and “shenanigans” the three amigos engage in. The time to end the reign of terror is now!

    Trust Maggie and Steve and Sandra and not the three amigos!

  • The Truth

    What an idiot remark from Consequence. Tries to sound intelligent while lying. Desperate to lie for the three amigos to justify your existence with attempts to manipulate the uninformed. Anyone who is kind, loving, intelligent, caring and knowledgeable knows that the political shenanigans you play are the true lies, slandering and fear mongering.

    Voters of Rosemead take one look at Maggie and her friends and you will see all the goodness in them.

    Take one look at the three amigos and you make your own judgment. Can you see right through them? Pure political interests and shenanigans is what people are seeing.

    What tax revenue is Wal-Mart bringing into the city? And who wants to spend it on pet projects. Yet to here a good answer on that. The three amigos and their friends quickly forget and can’t admit what good that has done. Keep spinning Bobby!

  • Rosemead Man

    There is a strong “political machine” in Rosemead. Tran and his cronie friends, politicians, businessmen and developers from other cities,make up this group. They are determined to run the city as “they see fit”.They make sure “their cronies” are hired as attorneys, engineer firms, trash companies and developers and consultants. Check out Tran’s, Nunez’s, and Lo’s big time contributors. That is how they can afford expensive mailers, yard signs and trinkets. The money is never a problem or a issue with them. They hire outsiders to do hit pieces on good, honest, hard working councilmenbers that they want out of office. Always spreading lies and making false accusations. That is their style. Like a sneak attack from a unsuspected wild mad man. The voters of Rosemead are way too smart to believe such “hog wash.” This Tuesday will MAKE or BREAK the City of Rosemead. We all must make a wise decision based on facts and honest and experience leaders like Clark, Ly, and Armenta. It is time for a positive change. We all can do it.

  • The Truth

    Rosemead Man……you are speaking the truth. Hopefully the residents of Rosemead DO NOT vote for the three amigos and they are dumped from the council. They have done enough damage already.

    Vote for Clark, Ly and Armenta if the city wants to get back to responsible city management and representation! That is the leadership this city needs.

  • The Consequence

    A hit piece would be to accuse your opponents of wanting to cut your fire and police coverage when they never made any such proposal. In fact, for some reason, the Sheriff’s Deputies and County Firefighters both endorsed Tran, Nuez and Lo. Doesn’t seem likely that would happen if the three wanted to get rid of county protection, but that doesn’t stop the lying liars of Pravda (and what ever other names he goes by) from repeating their lies, does it?

    A hit piece would be to claim crime your opponents are advocating eminent domain when none of them ever have. But, again, that doesn’t stop the lying liars of Pravda from claiming that over and over, does it?

    A hit piece would be to claim the city’s reserve fund is being depleted when, in fact, it remains as large now as the day our new majority was formed.

    A hit piece would be to claim that a poultry slaughterhouse in Rosemead has any connection to the whopping 7 deaths due to avian flu (in a country of 1.4 billion on the other side of the world).

    I hope Rosemead voters are smart enough to see that Clark and her friends have no vision and no interest in helping Rosemead move forward. All they want is power for themselves, and they’ll say anything to get it.

    By the way, Stevie, aren’t you tired of having to pretend that you’re someone other than yourself? Don’t you know multiple personalities is a serious mental condition? Please, for your own good: See a doctor.

  • HaHa

    Sorry Bob I am not Stevie. The truth of the matter is that the Sherrif’s and Fire Department had no choice but to endorse Tran. They too can count to 3. They also know which side their bread is buttered on. We all do.

  • Yeah, what ever you say, Stevie

    Ha, ha. So when Jay and Gary were part of the three person majority, why didn’t the Sheriff Deputies and Fire Fighters endorse them?

    D’oh. Hoisted by your own petard. Again.

  • What, no defense of your hit piece?

    And why aren’t you trying to defend your hit piece? Oh, yeah, because you know it’s all lies, but you sent it out, anyway. Yeah, that’s real leadership. Change we can believe in. NOT.

    You’ll say anything to get elected.

  • yeah right

    Sorry dude I don’t live in your city. You just amuse me. I like pulling your strings. You make me laugh…big time. You take things too way seriously. Jokes on you. Haa Haa

  • Mr. Gonzalez

    I am so happy for Mrs. Clark, Miss Armenta and Mr. Ly. We the people of your city are grateful that you three will work hard at City Hall. We appreciate your good, positive mailers. You gave us good reasons to vote for you. My family and I look forward in hearing and seeing elected officials that will make our city look great. Good luck and remember us your supporters. When is your swearing in? We plan to be there.

  • Jenny L.

    STEVEN LY IS BARELY 24 YEARS-OLD (birthday is in December). Time for a reality check! HELLO! He just graduated from college less than two years ago (Class of Spring 2007)! Doesn’t anyone think he should spend a few more years out of college and get some real-life experience before jumping into local politics? Steven Ly may look like a 40-year-old, but it doesn’t replace life experience. I love it how the Armenita/Clark/Ly-campaign failed to mentioned Ly’s background. He jumped on the coat-tails of Armenita and Clark. Talk about lack of transparency and honest. Under these circumstances, the citizens of Rosemead were mislead and Ly’s background was misrepresented.

  • Ha Ha

    The voters of Rosemead have made a wise choice. Age does not matter. Many persons who run for office are young and older. Ly will learn with time. No one person comes into office knowing all. His education will help make a huge differance in his performance. It is about time that we get people who have a college education. They are well rounded and come prepared to meet head on, a great responsibility. It does not matter what you say. Sounds more like you have a real issue with Ly. We will see what a great role Clark, Armenta and Ly play as dedicated, responsible Councilmembers of Rosemead. He will be a good role model for all youth. We all encourage our youth to better themselves and get a college education. He has done just that. Congratulations Councilmember Ly.

  • Rosemead Resident

    Jenny L., as a young person myself, I don’t appreciate you singling out Ly because of his age. Steven has plenty of experience starting up and managing organizations of many kinds and has brought them to success. He already meets the educational and life experience to do his impending job. Plus, as a recent college grad, he is open to fresh ideas.

    Do you really think that experienced helped the corrupt regime of the past? (Tran was 23 when he got onto the school board, but you failed to mention that.)

    Ly had fought a great campaign. HIS hard work got himself into office. Voters were able to choose ANY combination of councilmembers (note how poorly Nunez did in relation to Tran). They could have chosen not to vote for this unknown newcomer. But they didn’t. They have come to know Ly though his high involvement with the city.

    The voters are NOT dumb; they were able read and notice if a candidate’s background details are lacking. But they would not vote for someone who they did not feel was not qualified or someone they did not trust. Stop putting down voters. They can think, as we all saw by the outcome of this election.

    At any rate, his age was revealed in The Tribune. I am younger than him but have an advanced degree and several years of varied work experience, which is more than many “youth” can accomplish. Your overgeneralization is truly offensive.

    I think it’s funny that people will say with a straight face that when their side wins, the election “proves” their candidates are wonderful and pristine, but when their side loses, it’s because the other side is corrupt, and has sold out to special interests.

    Baloney.

    Elections are won by the side with the more effective campaign. Period. Winning doesn’t prove you’re great, and losing doesn’t prove you’re bad.

    The other side spent four years running a very effective campaign. Their campaign was misleading, but their lies were effective. Some people actually believed that the city’s reserve fund was shrinking, that their taxes were going up, that they were going to lose police and fire protection, that the new general plan would lead to worse traffic than the old plan, that poultry slaughterhouses were going to spring up all over their city, that the “property police” were going to tear down their front yard fences, that they were going to have to buy permits for on-street parking, and any number of other lies perpetrated by the Clark gang. Heck, if I believed all those things, I’d have voted to “toss the bums out,” too.

    I am so very proud of the citizens of Rosemead for voting against the three amigos. It is truly a positive step towards building a better city that is fiscally responsible and not subjected to outside influences of the political machine that lied to the citizens of Rosemead when Tran and Nunez were elected a few years ago. The record is blatantly obvious that the three amigos had no place in the City Council. Im sure many are glad the errors of the past are fixed and no need for comments from the losing ticket supporters unless they are positive. The people have spoken and if you truly care about Rosemead you will put this behind you and work with the new council.

    Have no fear, Maggie Clark and Gary Taylor will work for a better Rosemead, that is properly planned and all issues are addressed. The decision-making process will be open and factual. It will be a time of leadership training for the new council members. Rosemead will be in good hands.

    My father once said “Don’t worry, good overcomes evil in the end, it all works ifself out”

  • Proud Resident

    The City of Rosemead will return to what it was before. One filled with pride and good and honest councilmenbers. I have faith in these new councilmenbers. Hopefully Tran and Nunez will disapear comepletely and stop spreading their corruption into other cities. The “political machine” has been dismanteled. Let’s see what others who lived by the soard, die by the soard. That is, their own greed, lies, and corruption caught up with them. There is hope for Rosemead after all. We Congratulate Mayor Clark, and councilmenbers Armenta and Ly.

My family and I say “buena suerte” to our new Councilmembers Armenta and Ly, but especially to our new Mayor Maggie Clark. We are so proud of you. God Bless you and watch over you three.

You may fool your minions, but informed Rosemead residents know the truth. And you have the audacity to talk about outside influences.

    Talking obout outside interests,how much has Mike Lewis (walmart crony) contributed to Clark’s shameful campaign? Not only with monetary funding, but developing the negative(lies) hit pieces for her campaign.

    Good luck Rosemead. You are provided with an opportunity to grow and change with a city council that cares about the city. Ly and Armenta need to embrance and follow the leadership qualities of Clark and Taylor. Then fly young birds, weigh all the facts and make good decisions.

    Benefit-cost analysis? You mean like an environmental impact report, which showed that traffic under the new general plan will be much less than it would be under the old general plan? Yes, I read that document, which is why I support the new general plan.

    Did you read the new plan? Did you read the environmental documents that came along with it? If you did, you know I’m right, and you are lying to people to score political points. If you didn’t, then your pretend concern for sound policy decision making is just more smoke being blown out of your undoubtedly ample butt.

    I think I’m done visiting this thread, too.

    Cheers, again. CAP. Again, feel free to post another hysterical content-free rant below.

  • The Truth

    Todd your comments are meaningless. It must be tuff standing up now that the rug has been pulled out from under you and no one to hold up your strings.

    The people have spoken and believed in the other side. Now get back to work and there is no golden parachute for you to fall back on.
