Another incumbent has qualified for the March 2024 election according to the City Clerk’s office.

District 2 Councilmember Felicia Williams became the third incumbent to qualify for the March 2024 election.

Williams turned in her nomination petition and fee on Nov. 30, according to City Clerk Mark Jomsky’s office.

In 2020, Williams won the District 2 seat with 52.85% of the vote. Williams beat Kevin Litwin, Tricia Keane and Bo Patatian to represent the district.

District 2 is in the central part of the City. Williams currently represents the City as the Vice President of the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority and on the Executive Board of Foothill Transit.  

Rick Cole has pulled papers to oppose Williams in the election, but so far has not qualified. Candidates have until Dec. 8 to qualify for the contest.

To date, Williams and District 1 and District 4 incumbents Tyron Hampton and Gene Masuda respectively have qualified for the election.

Hampton is running unopposed so far, and Jonathan Horton has pulled papers to oppose Masuda.  

In District 3 Brandon Lamar is hoping to wrest the seat away from Justin Jones. Jones was twice appointed to the seat after John J. Kennedy died in 2022.

In District 6 Steve Madison will square off against Tamerlin Godley and Mark Hannah.

Mayor Victor Gordo also pulled papers for the election. He could have an opponent in the March election if Allen Shay, who pulled papers Thursday, qualifies for the race.

The full City Council has endorsed Gordo.

Candidates and incumbents must collect 25 signatures and pay a $25 fee to qualify for the election. Fifty signatures are required for mayoral candidates.

Through Dec. 8. candidates and incumbents may circulate nomination petitions to gather signatures from registered voters.

In the event that the incumbent does not file papers by the close of business on December 8, the deadline to circulate nomination petitions and file paperwork will be extended to December 13.

Papers for City offices are available in the Office of the City Clerk, 100 N. Garfield Ave., Room S228, Pasadena.
