Monrovia's Mayflower School Wins $20,000 | Holden Franchise Bill Advances

~ Monrovia's Mayflower Elementary School has won $20,000 for playground equipment from Dr Pepper Snapple Group and KaBOOM! The contest involved getting Monrovian's to vote online for the school, and Mayflower rounded up enough votes to come in number one.

~ A bill by Assembly member Chris Holden, who represents Monrovia, to protect small business franchise owners has been approved in Senate Business, Professions and Economic Development Committee on a 6 to 1 vote. AB 525 makes it more difficult for chains to terminate franchise operators.
