Mayor and City Clerk invites observers

Mayor Lionel Rivera and City Clerk Kathryn Young have invited Secretary of State Scott Gessler to send observers from his office to watch the City's election process. The Secretary of State has no jurisdiction over Municipal Elections, however, interested observers are always welcome to watch. The City Clerk has also invited other municipal clerks in the state to observe, if interested.

"We are happy to showcase our election process," said Mayor Lionel Rivera. "The City Clerk has run numerous elections and, as always, she will conduct this election with complete transparency and in accordance with all state laws. We are proud of the efficient, fair and transparent process we use."
