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.

-April Verlato

     Re-elect April Verlato

From April’s idea to start a citizens financial advisory committee to her unwavering pursuit to pass Measure A, April has demonstrated a keen ability to lead in new directions and execute plans that will benefit our community.
