Tom Adams, who is running for Monrovia mayor, has offered $1,000 in a Facebook posting to the first person who can show from city council minutes where he voted against the Gold Line. Adams challenged Mayor Mary Ann Lutz' assertion in a campaign mailer that he voted against the Gold Line.
Comment: My suspicion is that Lutz is referring to Adams' opposition to selling the property next to Home Depot to the Gold Line for a train maintenance yard. At the time, if I recall correctly, he argued that the yard could stay in LA where it had been and that the sale of that property to a governmental agency would take that property off the tax roles. But I'm guessing and I would welcome clarification from the Lutz campaign.
