Statement of Mayoral Candidate Stephen Grollnek

[Candidate statements are posted as received - Brad Haugaard]

Stephen Grollnek for Mayor 

After 33 years we finally have a chance to rid ourselves of the local cartel.  Fight the lying, cheating, and stealing, elect an outsider.  I am an honest businessman and long-time resident of Monrovia.  I stand for honesty and high visibility in leadership.

Over-development in Monrovia has made a few rich while slowing draining the city of it's quaint home-spun image.  So called low income housing which is really hugely over priced has contributed to on-street parking problems as well as over crowding in some areas.  New hotels and high rise buildings have become the norm in Monrovia.  This is great for the political elite as it enables them to have their beachfront home in Mexico but robs the city of it's charm.

The Friday night street fair is nothing more than a lowly swap meet.  Over-priced meals on Myrtle Avenue that few of the local folks can afford, a ghastly pawn shop in the middle of Old Town, are all signs that our city is moving in the wrong direction.

Elect a vibrant, hard working, consciencious local businessman.  I am the person to lead our town and begin to turn our once lovely city around to the shining All American City it was.

The Shadow endorses Mr. Grollnek for mayor.  The perennial candidate for 24 years, already called 'Mr. Mayor' by many.  Let’s make it a reality.

  1. The Monrovia Shadow link "themonroviashadow.com" is not valid. The URL "monroviashadow.com" works.

    1. The URL themonroviashadow.com was what was submitted, however, to allow people to access the site I have changed it to monroviashadow.com

  2. L O L isn’t the shadow your own publication? So basically you are endorsing yourself?

  3. Why would I vote for a mayoral candidate that didn't even know he ran over a pedestrian, dragging her under his car and causing her untimely demise. And you have the audacity to criticize other Monrovians and businesses in this town. Maybe you should just keep being in the shadow of the Shadow and take driving lessons. It sounds like you have more baggage than an airport baggage claim.

  4. You have my vote! I want to see Tom and all his people out of office. They have run our city in the ground for far too long

  5. Regrettably looked into this nonsense of a blog to find some nineteenth century anti-asian racist tropes as one of their stories. Good way to let new residents like myself know who the local bigot is.

  7. Ummmm...The Shadow? You're endorsed by a fictional character? "The Shadow is a collection of serialized dramas, originally in 1930s pulp novels and later in a variety of media. Its title character has been featured on the radio, in a long-running pulp magazine series, in American comic books, comic strips, television, serials, video games, and at least five feature films. The radio drama include episodes voiced by Orson Welles." - Wikipedia

  8. The last thing this city needs is a homicidal maniac in any public position - Grollneck is a total embarrassment - send him back under the rock from which he crawled.

  10. When voting for Mayor in 2022, please vote for the person who didn't kill someone this year.
