All expected prospective candidates have pulled papers for the 2024 City Council elections.
As of Thursday morning, Brandon Lamar pulled papers in District 3 which could lead to the much expected match up between Lamar and incumbent Justin Jones.
Lamar, Rick Cole in District 2 and Jonathan Horton in District 4 announced their intentions to enter their respective races months ago. All have now attended the required workshop and received the necessary paperwork to collect signatures to qualify for the ballot.
Meanwhile, on the incumbent side, as of Thursday morning, District 1 Councilmember Tyron Hampton is the only incumbent without an opponent.
In District 2 Felicia Williams is facing a tough challenge from former Mayor Rick Cole.
Horton is challenging Gene Masuda in District 4. Masuda had the highest vote percentage in the 2020 election.
In District 6 Steve Madison once again will square off against Tamerlin Godley.
Newcomer Mark Hannah has also pulled papers in that race.
Mayor Victor Gordo also pulled papers for the election.
Gordo is the first person in two mayoral election cycles to receive endorsements from the entire City Council.
Nominating papers were made available to prospective candidates on Monday.
Papers for City offices are available in the Office of the City Clerk, 100 N. Garfield Ave., Room S228, Pasadena.
Through Dec. 8. candidates and incumbents may circulate nomination petitions to gather signatures of registered voters.
