The candidates who want to represent the local communities in state office are gearing up for the June 6 election, with the election calendar beginning Dec. 30. The only incumbents voters can pick are the two members of Congress, Adam Schiff and David Dreier, as all the Assembly members are term limited out this year. The same thing will happen in two years for State Senators Jack Scott and Bob Margett. Five candidates are seeking the 44th District Assembly seat now held represented by Carol Liu. They are La Cañada Mayor Anthony Portantino, Pasadena commissioner Diane Peterson-More, Adam Murray, Brian Center and David Trujillo, all Democrats.

Hampered by a left-wrist injury that affected her long game, Jocelyn Chia spent time trying to perfect her short game to compensate. Feeling a slight soreness most times she hit off a tee or an approach shot during the first half of the season, the Crescenta Valley High sophomore girls' golfer encountered a more calming presence and a lack of pain when it came to making a putt. While the injury nagged Chia, it proved to be a boon for her as the season progressed. "It bothered me a little in the beginning of the season, but it definitely helped my short game," Chia said.

A former assemblyman and a Pasadena councilwoman have announced plans to run for a state Senate seat in the 25th district currently held by Carol Liu (D-La Cañada Flintridge). The seat will open up in 2016 when Liu must leave office due to term limits. The district, established during last year's redistricting, includes La Cañada Flintridge, Burbank, Glendale and Pasadena. Anthony Portantino, a Democrat, said Friday that he is getting back into politics because people in his district want him to keep pushing for transparency in government and funding for education.

All four La Cañada Unified School Board candidates have confirmed that they will participate in an election forum scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday at the La Cañada High School auditorium. The 90-minute forum is being co-sponsored by the La Cañada PTA Council and the League of Women Voters, and will include time for candidate statements as well as questions from the audience. A similar event hosted during the 2009 election season drew about 75 people. “The candidates have an opportunity to listen to the concerns of their possible constituents, and then of course it gives the voters the chance to compare and contrast the candidates on the issues,” said Bonnie Skolnik, director of voter services with the League of Women Voters.
