“Protecting the quality of life in our neighborhoods requires a city council representative that is reliable, steady and focused on controlling development, reducing crime and traffic, and enhancing home values and overall quality of life. My campaign for City Council is about putting the needs and desires of current Pasadena residents first,” Hosp said.
Hosp said in his announcement that he moved with this family to Pasadena as a teenager twenty years ago and graduated from Loyola High School. After receiving a business degree from Boston University, he served four years as a Tank Officer in the U.S. Army, achieving the rank of Captain. Hosp said he served two tours in Iraq and was awarded the Bronze Star.
After serving in the military, Hosp said he obtained a law degree from Loyola Law School and became an active volunteer in a number of organizations, including the Los Angeles Big Brothers Program and Loyola Law School Veteran’s Justice Project. He is currently an attorney with the international law firm of Locke Lord LLP, and has been recognized by Super Lawyers magazine as a “Southern California Rising Star.”
Hosp and his wife, Vivian, along with their two preschool-age daughters, are residents of the Madison Heights neighborhood in Pasadena’s District 7.
