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.

Eight candidates are seeking the 26th Congressional District, which does have an incumbent, David Dreier. Running in the Republican primary are Dreier, Sonny Sardo of La Cañada Flintridge and Mel Milton of Walnut.

They are La Cañada Mayor Anthony Portantino, Pasadena commissioner Diane Peterson-More, Adam Murray, Brian Center and David Trujillo, all Democrats.

The lone Republican candidate so far planning to run in the 43rd Assembly District special election will be able to register for the race today from a new address, about two months after he rented an apartment in the district. The candidate, Sunder Ramani, has lived outside the district in La Cañada since 1994, but for about 25 years has operated businesses and been an active member of organizations in Glendale and Burbank, which fall largely within the district’s boundaries.
