On November 3, 2020 voters across the country will either cast 
ballots by mail or physically go to the polls in some have already 
dubbed, "the most important election of our lives". That may be 
very true especially on the National level. However, the election of 
capable individuals locally is equally as important.

residents will go to the polls and select three people from a field of 
eight to sit on our city council, vote on whether or not to elect or 
appoint our City Clerk, vote for our City Treasurer and select the 
representative to sit on the Pasadena Unified School Board.

In addition to the candidate spotlights, we will attempt to cover

Our reporting on this election will be as fair and objective as possible. 
However, please keep in mind that our columnists are always 
free to share their opinions. Their opinions are their opinions and 
may or may not reflect the position of the paper. 

This is true in all things, not just this election.

Finally, we will also provide for you the calendar of important 
dates regarding the election. It is our goal to do whatever we can to 
help you make an informed decision on November 3, 2020.
