Who won in Monrovia’s municipal election?
Monrovia Mayor Tom Adams will serve for another two-year term after his victory in Tuesday’s municipal election against challenger Mark Harris. Adams took home 1345 votes, while Harris secured 227 Monrovia voters.
Other winners include Councilmen Larry Spicer (1132 votes) and Alexander Blackburn (991 votes) over City Council hopeful Clifford DeCosta, who only brought in 539 votes. Spicer and Blackburn will both serve four-year terms.
Steve Baker and Alice Atkins both won their races for City Treasurer and City Clerk, respectively. Neither candidate faced any opposition in these races.
Adams was confident about his chances before the election, saying that he believed Monrovians were seeing positive changes in the community. According to Adams, major changes (such as Monrovia Renewal) would take more time, but that residents could expect steady and reliable leadership from him.
“So far, everyone seems to be pretty positive about the improvements they’re seeing in town,” Adams said.
