[Update: A previous version of this story contained a paragraph that could have been mistaken as an endorsement by Pasadena Now, Pasadena Now has not endorsed any candidates.]
Pasadena City Council candidate Tricia Keane has earned the endorsement of Bike the Vote LA in her race for Pasadena City Council District 2.
Bike the Vote LA released their Pasadena Voter Guide stating: “As Pasadena stands at a crossroads between looking forward towards a more people-oriented and equitable city and one paralyzed by fear of change; Keane has decidedly focused her campaign with an optimistic vision of moving the city forward on housing, economic and social justice, and sustainability. We appreciate Keane’s bold vision for a Pasadena that leads the way to solve the difficult challenges that the city shares with its neighbors across Los Angeles County. Bike the Vote L.A. is honored to endorse Tricia Keane for Pasadena City Council District 2.”
Tricia Keane graduated with honors from UCLA Law School, clerked for the Hon. James S. Gwin, US District Court for Northern District of Ohio, and for the past 13 years worked in local government overseeing planning, housing, and improving connectivity with mass transit.
“Pasadena is facing a crisis of housing and homelessness. People who live and work in Pasadena are being priced out of our community. We need someone dedicated to solutions, not the status quo to tackle our affordability crisis,” stated Tricia Keane.
Tricia Keane laid out a bold vision of tackling Pasadena’s crisis of mobility, including accelerating the implementation of Pasadena’s Safe Streets & Safe Routes to School, improving local bus service, and developing a robust network of protected bike lanes.
