Lyon’s Lead Shrinks in District 7 Race, But Candidate Still Above 50%

Published on Wednesday, June 15, 2022 | 5:42 am

According to new numbers released by the LA County Registrar’s office, District 7 candidates gained ground on top vote-getter Jason Lyon.

But Lyon remains above the all-important 50% tally needed to avoid a runoff election.

In that race Jason Lyon leads Ciran Hadjian and Allen Shay with 51.6% of the vote. Hadjian has 36.7% of the vote, and Shay has nearly 11.5 percent of the vote.

In District 3, incumbent John Kennedy maintains a healthy lead over Brandon Lamar. In District 5 with 60.47% of the vote. Lamar trails with 39.53%

The update is the second update since the June 7 election which saw local voters go to the polls and select candidates in three City Council races and three races for the Pasadena City College Board of Trustees.

Further tallies are scheduled for June 17, June 2,1 June 24, and June 28 if needed.

California state law requires the County Registrar to complete and certify results within 30 days. This provision of the law recognizes the complexity of completing the ballot count and conducting a thorough audit of the election results to ensure accuracy.

Incumbents continue to struggle in the Pasadena City College Board of Trustee.

Incumbent Berlinda Brown continues to trail in her race against Steve Gibson in the Area 3 race for the Pasadena City College Board of Trustees.

Gibson leads the race with 59.86 % of the vote.

In the Area 5 race, Kristine Kwong maintained a slight lead over Linda Wah with 52.08% of the vote.

Anthony Fellow is holding on to a razor-thin lead over Alton Wang, 3,809-3,783.

Fellow has 50.17% of the vote.
