State Senator Jack Scott, who represents La Cañada Flintridge and other cities set in the foothills, has not decided if he would seek re-election if a change in state law made that possible, he told the Glendale City Council last week. Currently, Scott is set to be term limited out of the seat he has held since 2000, but an initiative on the February ballot could change that. Scott showed no signs of being ready to leave the stage during his presentation to the council, in which he reported on issues from the legislative session just concluded.
