The signs have been up for maybe a month now, so we know that an election is around the corner. On March 7, Claremonters will choose two members for the five-member City Council from a field of eight candidates. You can usually see all signs at the corner of Foothill and Indian Hill – in front of the Old School House as well as Sherwood Florist.
Several groups have hosted forums for candidates to answer questions and introduce themselves. Two of the eight candidates are incumbents. The next candidate forum is at Pitzer College tomorrow night. Here is a photo from a previous forum at the Hughes Center. The room was packed.
I often walk by this house, and this sign stumped me, as I didn’t recognize the name of the candidate, nor does Claremont vote for a mayor. I found out that it is a candidate for mayor in neighboring La Verne.
