Pasadena DUers: What are your thoughts on the March 7 election...

...for City Council? Specifically District 5.

The candidates are:

Victor M. Gordo, Aida Morales (although not sure if she will be on the ballot at this time), and Krystal Lopez Padley.

I have spoken to Gordo and Padley, I had no problem with what either of them said, but I am looking into their backgrounds to get a clearer picture of what to expect from them. I haven't been in Pasadena too long, so I believe this is the first City Council election I would've been able to vote in.

Gordo, the incumbent first elected in 2001, is an attorney and "Establishment Democrat" and has also served as Vice Mayor twice.

Padley is an unknown to me "small i independent," and I don't have any major issues with her stated positions on her "big 3" issues -public safety, infrastructure and education. I also know that she is not a Trump supporter, but neither is Gordo.

Anybody out there from Pasadena Dist. 5?
