Schools booster Charlie Kamar, anti-sewers activist Robert Richter, former Planning Commission member James K. Hill and Planning Commissioner Michael Davitt have each pulled nomination papers for the three seats at stake in the March 8 City Council election, making for a potentially crowded field of candidates that includes incumbents Laura Olhasso and Mayor Donald Voss.
These council hopefuls and any others who might emerge have until Dec. 15 to file their nominations and officially begin what promises to be a colorful local election season. Veteran Councilman Greg Brown has announced that he will not run for reelection. If Brown had chosen to run, candidates would have to file nomination papers by Dec. 10.
Voss, first elected in 2006, and Olhasso, on the council since 2003, say their records as city leaders position them to face any number of challenges that lie ahead for La Cañada Flintridge.
