La Canada Flintridge is not a town known for political dissent. It is more of a peaceful refuge, where City Council candidates debate such woes as "mansionization," where, as if in another time, spacious homes sit under old cedars and cords of firewood lie stacked neatly under the eaves. The city's schools are renowned. Its treasury has an $11-million surplus. And its setting is serene, with streets that tilt skyward, away from the sprawl, into deep, quiet folds of the San Gabriel Mountains.
