No pictures, please


Regular beat reporting has taken a back seat to ongoing fire coverage the past week, but here’s a little tidbit out of the Diamond Bar City Council election:

S. Dhand is one of seven people running for two spots on the Diamond Bar City Council.
But don’t expect to see a picture of him anytime soon.

The West Covina-based physician — who has been practicing medicine for nearly three decades — wasn’t too keen on providing his photo when reporter James Wagner asked him for it.

Dhand told Wagner he didn’t think it was appropriate.

The political newcomer has been a Diamond Bar resident for 28 years, and isn’t affiliated with any political groups or leaders.

He’ll face two incumbents in the Nov. 3 election.

Wonder what is campaign mailers will look like?
