Councilman Charley Glasper says Adelanto is where he will hang his hat “until the good Lord calls me home.” When talking with him it doesn’t take long to realize how much this 79-year-old really means it. He loves his city and has dedicated himself to making it a better place to live for all of its residents.
The councilman entered the crazy world of politics after reading about an embarrassing incident involving a former mayor in 2002. He lost his city council race that year by just 67 votes but that did not deter him from trying again in 2004 where he came out on top. Since then he also served as mayor for a time and is currently serving the second year of his 2014 four-year term on the council.
Glasper says the current council is paying for the sins of its forefathers. He says a lot of mistakes were made, including the misuse of redevelopment money. Those mistakes are handcuffing the current council as it tries to make things right.
