Measure G Currently On Hold

Due to a clerical error by the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder, the ballot measure removing the Alhambra Unified School District from the Alhambra City Charter was left off of the ballot for some school district voters. Therefore, the measure, which originally passed with 69.29% of the vote, is currently being put on hold.

Measure G, which would remove the AUSD from the city charter, is supposed to be decided by all AUSD voters, but those living in parts of San Gabriel, Rosemead and Monterey Park did not see it on their Nov. 3 ballots.

Denise R. Jaramillo, the school superintendent, said in a statement, “Alhambra Unified, the City of Alhambra and the Los Angeles County Registrar’s office are continuing to collaborate in search of the best path for resolving the issues this error presents for Measure G. Since the problem has no precedent, the careful exploration by all parties of the best possible administrative or legal options will be thoughtful and take the time required.”

The initiative was seen as part of a larger effort, which included city Measure V, to move towards by-district voting rather than at-large voting. Removing mentions of AUSD from the Alhambra city charter, would have been the first step in making potential changes to the AUSD school board election process as well as placing the district under general state law.
