The Pasadena mayoral election is coming up on March 10, 2015. Current Mayor Bill Bogaard has indicated that he does not intend to offer any endorsement in the Mayor’s race, and an excellent writeup on his term of office can be found at The Planning Report. Mayor Bogaard’s Jan.15th final State of the City address can be viewed here.
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.
