  1. each of them honored benefit recipients of California's Prop 47. A guy and a gal in a car in Monrovia with drugs and burglary tools. I am appalled.

  2. each of them honored recipients of being able to take over our city and parks courtesy of our city council and mayor that does nothing about it. Monrovia is their safe haven. They've been driven out of other cities. Monrovia welcomes them. There is even have a Monrovia facebook page to support them.
