Voters in the San Gabriel Valley will go to the polls Tuesday to elect officials in two cities and two school districts.
In Pasadena, there are three open seats on the seven-member Board of City Directors and two open board seats in the Pasadena Unified School District.
Seeking reelection to the Board of City Directors are incumbents Loretta Thompson-Glickman, William Thomson and Jess Hughston.
Facing Glickman in District 3 is Chris Holden, a 24-year-old investment counselor and the son of former state Sen. Nate Holden (D-Culver City). In District 7, Thomson is seeking his second term against J. Albert Curran, a retired businessman. In District 5, Hughston faces Margaret Sedenquist, a wealthy businesswoman.
Should any candidate fail to capture 50% plus one vote, a runoff election will be held in April.
In the school district race, seven first-time candidates are seeking election to the five-member board. The candidates in District 3 are Brent D. Gunderson, a Pasadena businessman; Arlene Moncrief, an Altadena accountant; James McBath, a university instructor; and Paul Tooby, a businessman. Running in District 5 are Emmell Beech, a Pasadena teacher; Marie River, a clinical psychologist in Altadena; and Anne Pursel, a community volunteer worker.
