Thursday afternoon, Pasadena Mayor Victor Gordo formally announced that he would be running for re-election.

“I am excited to announce that I am running for re-election to continue to serve the people of Pasadena,” Gordo said in an emailed statement.

“In a short amount of time, we have accomplished so much together to improve Pasadena. From navigating the COVID-19 crisis and recovery to addressing the need for more affordable housing, I have worked in collaboration with city officials, community leaders, working families and local businesses to put Pasadena on the pathway towards a brighter future. That said, there is nonetheless still work to be done and I am just optimistic and excited about the opportunities that await our beloved city. It would be an honor to continue to serve the people of Pasadena – and as Mayor – in the City that I love.”

Born in Mexico, Gordo immigrated to the United States with his parents as a young child. The oldest of six children, he grew up in Pasadena, attending Pasadena public schools.

Formerly a Pasadena City Councilmember, Gordo worked for almost 19 years focusing on quality of life issues, including opposing overdevelopment, fighting crime, championing a living wage, increasing government transparency, getting rid of problem liquor stores and replacing them with affordable housing, and “taking back” City parks.

Gordo was the longest-serving president of the Rose Bowl Operating Company, leading it through a major renovation

Gordo is married to Kelly, an elementary school teacher in the El Monte Unified School District, and together they have two children, Michael and Emma.
