4 – 2 defeat
The Pomona City Council Voted AGAINST the proposed moratorium that would have stopped the impounding of only illegal alien drivers’ vehicles.
4 NO VOTES Mayor Eilliot Rothman, Council Members Adriana Robledo, Paula Lantz and Ginna Escobar
2 YES VOTES Council Members John Nolte and Cristine Carrizosa
Council Member Debra Martin was not present
The force behind the defeat of the moratorium in Pomona is the group Citizens for a Better Pomona, which Carol Schlaepfer heads up. When the moratorium was introduced, Carol and her group mobilized opposition within Pomona and then reached out to coalitions such as We The People Rising, NCIR and the Redlands Tea Party Patriots, in a show of community strength.

This photo represents the organized groups and well-funded efforts that Carol and the Citizens for a Better Pomona were up against and, ultimately, were able to defeat.
