Why we endorsed these candidates in this election:   City councils are elected by the voters to govern the city.  Effective fiscal and management oversight, transparency, and resident involvement are critical to good governance. Ultimately, each city council member is responsible to the voters who elected them. Unfortunately, our current city council dismisses resident concerns and implements their own agenda, an agenda most residents do not support.

 

Our endorsement criteria:  We considered each candidate’s experience and understanding on how local government functions.  We wanted to know their level of knowledge, priorities, and vision for the City of West Covina. 

 

We gained insight into each candidate’s understanding on a variety of issues such as the proposed health department, Sportsplex, BKK, sale of the city yard, homelessness.  We were pleased by the quality of the candidates who seek office.  We selected the candidates who we felt are the best fit for the position at this time. 

Disclosure:  We reached out to all city council candidates. Three candidates declined to speak with us:  Letty Lopez, incumbent, District 2; Yara Wolff, District 4; and Tony Wu, incumbent, District 5.

2022 Candidate Series - West Covina City Council

Steve Bennett produced the  “Candidate Series” by interviewing each candidate separately.  All candidates running for City Council were invited.  Three candidates participated.  Each of the participating candidates were asked the same question on the same topic. When you listen to each podcast, you will hear each candidate's explain in his own words, unscripted--his position on issues of concern to residents, i.e. the West Covina's on-going deficit spending, the proposed municipal health department, crumbling city spaces, and more.  It's a great way to get to know each candidate.
