Three candidates and one surrogate spoke at a Pasadena forum on the 44th Assembly District last week, as the race to choose a successor for Assemblymember Carol Liu nears an end.

Democrat Anthony Portantino spoke about his endorsements from Liu and state Sen. Jack Scott. The New Jersey native and La Cañada resident said he came to California to work in the film industry, and first ran for office because he perceived an apathetic view toward council elections.

On June 5, 1832, French writer Victor Hugo was sitting in a park crafting another masterpiece. Startled by the sounds of exploding cannons and screaming men, he dropped his pen and, instead of running for the safety of home, dashed toward the sound of the guns. He made his way up the narrow and winding streets of Paris and suddenly was amid barricades and flying bullets. He had stumbled upon the June Rebellion. The insurrection was a fight between the Republicans/students and the Monarchists/government.
