Why Is One Mayoral Candidate Displaying the Lawn Signs of Another Mayoral Candidate?

Well, here's something you don't see every day.

Stephen Grollnek is running for mayor of Monrovia, in a three-way contest with incumbent Tom Adams and challenger Melissa Taylor.

So, since Grollnek is running against Melissa Taylor, why is he displaying HER signs in his front yard?

I called him up to ask.

He told me the whole reason but then asked me not to publish it yet unless at least 10 people comment on this article.

Hoo Boy!

Anyway, please comment so I can write the rest of this story. I think either here or on Facebook ( will work fine.

  1. I noticed the signs also, but were they in his yard or on city property?

  2. Brad I fear you are being used by many people during this silly season. How dare they threaten your journalistic integrity by playing such games.

  3. I remember when he was running for mayor when the movie theater was being built. He warned that having a movie theater was such a bad idea that it would lead to the demise of down town
    Monrovia. He predicted that the police department would have to move into to theater because of all the rampant crime it was going to generate.

  4. All things considered in the scheme of things, his reasons are irrelevant and wholly insignificant. A reporter shouldn’t bother even considering being manipulated into printing his “reasons” even if this piece gets 100 comments. It’s just silliness by an indifferent candidate who runs for office to pet his own ego rather than out of any serious desire to keep Monrovia prosperous, thriving, and beautiful.

  5. Melissa Taylor has my vote. I know her from Moms Demand Action. She is dedicated and hard working.

  6. Haha, this is Louise Bialik, my son changed my name to cupcake sprinkle as a prank. And I don’t know how to change it back. Lol
