City of Madera posts mysterious MaderaProud countdown on new website

The City of Madera has launched a new website featuring a countdown clock ticking away towards something unclear.

A background picture of Madera’s historic City Hall building displays behind large text that reads “#MADERAPROUD“, a hashtag commonly used on social media by Maderans as a way to celebrate their hometown. The timer appears to be counting down to just over 12 days from now (noon on March 29th), notably just 30 minutes after the start of the Madera County Economic Development Commission’s State of the County event.

“This is just the beginning of something we can celebrate together,” said Madera Mayor Andy Medellin, “I wish I could say more, stay tuned.”

The mysterious website that has launched seemingly out of nowhere has led to rampant speculation about what exactly is going to be revealed when the timer expires.
