By the typically aggressive standards of political campaigns on the state or national level, the closing remarks of the four candidates for the South Pasadena City Council elections at a candidates' forum last week were largely reserved. There was none of that talk about "change," although at least one candidate raised the issue of a more diverse council.
The candidates—incumbents Michael Cacciotti and Philip Putnam, and first-time contestants Diana Mahmud and Alan Reynolds—appeared before a well-attended candidates' forum in the City Council Chambers of City Hall on Oct. 3. The event was co-sponsored by the Pasadena League of Women Voters and WISPPA (Women Involved in South Pasadena Political Action).
Their closing remarks are presented in their entirety in the attached video.
