Civic engagement makes our community stronger – and our Altadena Town Council (ATC) is critical to our community health! Our ATC has eight census tract districts, and every year one of the two representative seats is up for election.
Last year, only one person ran in each CT area. Without competition, several members were elected with fewer than 5 votes. We believe this hurts our community – if fewer people know what’s happening, then less gets done that’s good for all of us.
Do you have ideas to make Altadena a better place? Do you want to keep your neighbors informed about what’s happening in our town? Have you considered running for Town Council?
You have until May 12th to get your application in. The election is June 6th and June 10th.
If you can’t run, is someone in your census tract running?
