Jones Declares Victory Over Lamar in District 3 Race

In a message sent to Pasadena Now early Wednesday morning, Pasadena City Council District 3 incumbent Justin Jones declared victory over challenger Brandon Lamar.

“I have an insurmountable lead and as a result, I am declaring victory in the election for Pasadena City Council District 3,” Jones told Pasadena Now.

“I would like to thank the residents of District 3 for their faith and confidence in me. It is an honor and privilege to serve the residents of District 3 and put their needs first above all others. I look forward to continuing to listen to and serve the people of District 3 and continuing to oversee the delivery of excellent municipal services. I thank my wife, family, and district liaison for their sacrifice and support.”

At 3:15 a.m., Jones led with 60.05% of the vote (947-630 votes).

Jones was chosen twice over Lamar to fill parts of two terms left vacant by the death of John J. Kennedy.

After the City Council selected Jones to fill the vacant seat, Lamar supporters claimed Lamar had the support of District 3 residents and would have won a special election for the seat.

The City Charter calls for the seat to be filled by a vote of the City Council.

Residents in the district will vote again in two years.

Pasadena Now will continue to update the election results as they become available.
