Alhambra's People Before Profits Pledge!
Alhambra, like many local cities, suffers from the effects of overdevelopment, high-density spot developments like “The Villages” that lack careful and coordinated city planning and oversight, an absence of accountability for developers, and the corrupting influence of deep corporate pockets on our civic leaders. Therefore, we need City Councilmembers who will put people before profits and Alhambrans before corporations; who will have the guts to say NO to corporate greed and influence and to vote in favor of the collective appeals from the community instead.
If a resident:
- We the People of Alhambra pledge not to vote for candidates who refuse to take this pledge, and we will ensure they do not win by spreading the word, donating money to, and actively campaigning for, candidates that do.
If a current or prospective city councilmember
- I pledge to put the needs of the people and the environment over the wants and profits of corporations.
- I support the community-supported “Alhambra Election and Campaign Finance Reform Act” put forward by over 8,500 Alhambra registered voters throughout the City, which will level the playing field for grassroots candidates to run for election, whereas Councilmen Ross Maza, Jeff Maloney and David Mejia’s competing measure will not.
