The Pasadena mayoral election is coming up on March 10, 2015.

Six candidates are running for mayor and five candidates are seeking to fill the District 1 seat vacated by Councilwoman Jacque Robinson, who is running for mayor. Three other incumbent council seats are also on the ballot; they are running unopposed. There is also a race for three seats on the PUSD school board.
