Simi Valley Election Results

In a very close race for Simi Valley Mayor, Bob Huber took the election by about 1100 votes in a 51.4% to 47.8% victory. Our next Mayor of Simi Valley is Bob Huber.

On the City Council, Glen Becerra was re-elected with 28.18% of the vote. Mike Judge was also elected to the Council with 21.15%, making his campaign one of the most effective grassroots efforts in Simi Valley!

I owe my sincere gratitude to the candidates for sharing the experience with me along the way. I’ve never seen a harder working group of people digging in to fight for what the believe.

I wish Mayor Paul Miller the very best in his upcoming retirement. He served our City well. The few opportunities I’ve had to speak to him face to face have been a pleasure. I will always look up to him and feel honored to have gotten to know him.

The last several months have been difficult ones as we got closer to this moment. Hate mail and vandalism became common experiences for me, a showing of how passionate the debate had become. Despite that, I will cherish the friendships I’ve developed with so many of you leading up to this day, including the new ones I made last night. I will also mourn the friendships I’ve lost and pray for reconciliation. I’m still inspired by businessman Peter Carrube.

Congratulations to the victors. Now it’s time to roll up your sleeves and get it done!

  1. Shoo little last place gnat, shoo away.
    I have applied OFF and you can’t land. Flap away to no one and no where, little gnat. Last place is a lonely place to be.

  2. Well apparently the county and WM will present the mitigation measures before the City Council on November 22nd. That’s what Mayor Miller said last night.

  3. Do Say….
    It is my understanding that Mayor Miller, on November 22nd, will present to the Council the options that he and the City Manager were able to negotiate for the city. At that point, the Council will review and make further recommendations/comments when the new council is in place. I have been assured that all five points that the Task Force has requested have been met along with several other requests.
    The County will not be involved in the meeting of the 22nd….as far as I know.

  4. The 5 points requested by the Task Force appear straightforward. If Mayor Miller and the City were able to negotiate those points into what will be reported on Nov. 22, that seems like good news. Thanks, Barbra.

    I am keeping a positive attitude that in the end the residents of Simi Valley will fare much much better than they have in the past….

  6. If the City is able to negotiate a deal with the dump whereby the City is made whole for all the negative impacts the expansion will cause, including loss of jobs and tax revenue, then it is a win-win for all and we should all jump up in support of the project. Otherwise, we shall hunker down for a long battle.

  7. I take it that Barbra does not want to answer the simple question:

    Barbra, Does this mean that if all 5 of your landfill task force points have been met that you will support the expansion?

  8. It sounds like Not Force now wants to add additional items to the list. Loss of jobs and tax revenue due to the expansion? Annexing the landfill get result in more money for the City. If WM moves from Easy St, then they would be outside of the City of Simi Valley, but that is a different issue.

  9. Yeah, Not Force can not participate in an adult discussion and is not resorting to posting quotes. It does not seem that she has read her own quotes:

    “There is nothing worse than aggressive stupidity.”
    Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 – 1832)

    This is exactly what she is doing, most likely on orders from her gang leaders.

    You have to ask why someone who claims to be concerned about the landfill expansion would refuse to address issues or respond to questions. To me, it shows that the person has something to hide and their agenda is not what it seems.

    Thank you very much.
