I’m a lifelong resident of Alhambra and having a local newspaper, like Alhambra Source, is very important to me. It’s the only way to know the issues that will directly affect my day to day, where I live. That’s why I decided to support Alhambra Source with a monthly donation.

Efren Moreno, Former Alhambra Mayor

Thank you Alhambra Source for truly informing the residents of Alhambra.

Chris Olson

I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Adele Andrade Stadler, Alhambra Mayor

The Source is a great independent newspaper that celebrates the communities and is not afraid to ask the tough questions!

Cliff Bender, Vice President, Alhambra Education Foundation

Alhambra Source is the ONLY independent news source covering the events, culture and government of our city. We need it to stay informed and aware!

Joyce & Oscar Amaro, Alhambra Preservation Group

We support Alhambra Source because this online news source is vitally important in engaging, informing and educating the residents of Alhambra.

I support the Alhambra Source because journalism will always be part of that fourth branch of our democracy. The Alhambra Source provides me with news that helps me make informed decisions about issues that matter to me and my community. Thank you for the work you do.

Michael Lawrence, Alhambra Arts Commissioner

Keep bringing on the stories. The Source has given us so much and I am happy to donate to such an important part of our community.

I support Alhambra Source for their detailed information about important Alhambra issues and compelling human-interest stories.

Alhambra City Council to receive election and campaign finance ballot measure certification

Alhambra , CA United States

At 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 13, the city clerk will present the Alhambra City Council with a certification verifying that an Alhambra city charter amendment changing campaign donation and election rules for local elections has obtained enough signatures to be put on the 2020 ballot for voter consideration.

The measure would impose limits on campaign contributions for local elections. It would also change voting from at-large to by-district. In other words, residents would only be able to vote for the City Council members running in their district.

The Los Angeles County Registrar notified the City of Alhambra in late October that the ballot measure had obtained enough verified signatures to be placed on the ballot.

At 7 p.m., the City Council will also consider a cost recovery fee for drafting an implementing Alhambra’s general plan update and on changes the city has had to make to the charter to comply with state legislation. The council will also hear a presentation on Alhambra’s 2018-2019 strategic plan and consider a second reading of an ordinance on city contracts.

The consent agenda includes accepting a Department of Homeland Security grant to respond to terrorist attacks and a request for proposal to upgrade the elevators at the Alhambra Police Department.
