About Altadena Politics and How to Find Your Local Representative

Altadena is a County unincorporated town.  Our “mayor” is County Supervisor Kathryn Barger.  We have a volunteer, elected Town Council (ATC) that deals with many issues in our community, including development, neighborhood complaints, and education, and receives regular reports from our library and our Altadena Sheriff.  The ATC meets every third Tuesday of the month at the Altadena Community Center at 7 PM.

For the purpose of the ATC, Altadena is divided in to eight representational areas that correspond with our Census Tract districts. Each Census Tract district has two elected representatives. Representatives are elected for two year terms in an election on the first Tuesday each June.

To find out more about the ATC, go to their website at http://www.altadenatowncouncil.org.

To find your representative, here are the steps:

  1. Find out which Census Tract you live in on this page: http://tinyurl.com/altadena-census-tracts
  2. All representatives are listed on the Council webpage: http://altadenatowncouncil.org/
  3. While some of them list their own emails on their pages on this site, all can be emailed using their names in this format: firstname.lastname@altadenatowncouncil.org .

During the election season, the Altadena Election website has a lot of information on election specifics – please visit the website at www.AltadenaElection.org.
