John Doyle Qualifies For District 4 Election; Brandon Lamar Submits Paperwork as Nominating Period Draws to a Close

Published on Friday, December 8, 2023 | 5:23 am

Talk about a quick turnaround.

One day after he pulled papers to collect signatures to make the ballot in District 4, John Doyle has qualified for the election.

Doyle will face incumbent Gene Masuda and challenger Johnathan Horton.

Masuda was first elected to the Pasadena City Council in 2011.

In 2020, Masuda garnered 59.08% of the vote in his district and outpaced three opponents to secure another term. 

If none of the candidates receive more than 50% of the vote in the March election, the two top vote getters will square off in a runoff election in November.

The Mayor’s chair and seats in Districts 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6 are up for grabs in the election.

Mayor Victor Gordo qualified for the election on Wednesday. So far Allen Shay has not submitted the necessary papers to qualify for the election.  

In District 1, Tyron Hampton is running unopposed.

In District 2, Rick Cole is squaring off against Incumbent Felicia Williams.

Justin Jones and Brandon Lamar are running in District 3. Jones has qualified and Lamar submitted his nomination papers on Thursday.

In District 6 only Incumbent Steve Madison has qualified for the election. Tamerlin Godley and Mark Hannah have pulled papers, but as of 1:15 p.m. on Thursday, neither had officially qualified for the election.

Godley and Hannah have until close of business on Friday to qualify for the election.
