Re-Elect April Verlato for Arcadia City Council

I have lived in Arcadia my whole life. It’s where I went to school, it’s where I have my business and it’s where I have chosen to raise my family.

My accomplishments, since you first elected me to City Council in 2016, include:

  • I championed harmonious and compatible design of new homes with new design review rules, a Floor Area Ratio (FAR): limiting the size of new homes to a percentage of the lot size, and the first Historic Preservation Ordinance for Arcadia;
  • I secured $167,000 from LA County to help homeless in Arcadia find housing;
  • I helped introduce the Ring Doorbell home security program to our residents, making neighborhoods safer;
  • I created a Financial Advisory Committee made up of Arcadia residents, to provide recommendations to pay down the unfunded pensions, promoting transparency and accountability;
  • I worked to bring back a basketball court with the renovation of Eisenhower Park, reinforcing the priorities of the community;
  • I brought the Patriotic Festival, Holiday Fair and Halloween Haunting to Downtown Arcadia, enhancing the quality of life for residents;
  • I connected to the community through many activities including Mahjong with the Mayor and Coffee with the Mayor;
  • I convinced LA County to re-open the Spreading Basins in the Highlands, so more water was diverted into our aquifer instead of flowing to the ocean;
  • I currently serve as Mayor.

I hope I get the opportunity to meet you in person and share more of what I have done and what I plan to do if re-elected.

Sincerely,
verlato-sig
-April Verlato

     Re-elect April Verlato

I first learned of April’s passion for our neighborhoods while working together on our Architectural Review Board in 2014. Since then, I’ve witnessed nothing but April’s absolute commitment to the community and its residents. Like most people, I’ll engage with our city government from time-to-time if an issue motivates me enough to get off my couch and do something about it. I support April because she never rests when it comes to advocating for the residents of Arcadia. That is an inherent part of who she is.
