Pomona's surge in Latino population was reflected in Tuesday's municipal election as two Latinos led the field of eight candidates for mayor to qualify for a runoff in April. Councilman Tomas Ursua gained more than 38% of the vote but fell short of the 50% required to avoid a runoff. He will face planning commissioner Eddie Cortez, who edged Paul Geiger for the runner-up spot. Geiger, a political newcomer, ran with the backing of Mayor Donna Smith, who did not seek reelection.

Bell Gardens residents recalled three City Council members Tuesday and Redondo Beach voters elected their first new city clerk in 17 years. By a substantial margin, voters recalled Mayor Joaquin Penilla, Mayor Pro Tem David Torres and Councilman Salvador Rios, who have voted as a bloc during most of their tenure in Bell Gardens. The recall election was prompted by a petition drive led by City Councilwoman Maria Chacon and an activist group called Bell Gardens Parents United for Justice.

At first glance, Tuesday's runoff election for the Redondo Beach mayor's post and two City Council seats has all the makings of a fiery showdown. Incumbent Mayor Brad Parton, who was trounced in his bid for the Assembly last year, is fighting to save his political career in a runoff against former Councilman Ron Cawdrey and write-in candidate Chris Boyle. In the District 2 council race, three men--Rick Abelson, Greg Hill and write-in candidate Sal Princiotta--are competing for an open seat.
