With 11,503 ballots counted as reported by the LA County Registrar, 
Tina Wu Fredericks claimed victory in her year long campaign 
for Pasadena Unified School Board District 6. Since election 
night, Wu Fredericks has consistently held a 10-point lead 
over the field with over 1000 more votes than the second highest 
vote-getter. She attributes her success to her campaign ground 
game and large pool of dedicated volunteers. “COVID-19 and 
fires did not deter us. We talked to voters through door cracks 
and closed windows, wearing face masks and did so despite 100 
degree temperatures and bad air quality at times,” said Wu Fredericks. 
“How I led my campaign is how I will lead as a future PUSD Board member: bringing 
a community together around a shared vision and shared values. This community believes in 
public education and understands that public schools can be the great equalizer in a sometimes 
unjust and inequitable society.”

Wu Fredericks is disappointed by the failure of California Proposition 15 but remains hopeful 
about the passage of Measure O that won with 62% of total votes. “Measure O will allow 
PUSD to be technologically competitive with private schools while saving money for the district 
through energy efficient upgrades,” said Wu Fredericks. “To maintain public trust, it’s 
important for PUSD to improve on the process of the citizen oversight committee, which 
should actively demonstrate that expenditures are truly essential to the intent of the bond,” 
said Wu Fredericks. She pledges to continue to advocate for her campaign’s platform: smaller 
class sizes, hiring more teachers, and ensuring that every school has a librarian, nurse, custodian, 
and counselor by leaning on our state and federal elected officials to raise California’s 41st 
ranking in per-pupil spending.

Wu Fredericks concluded, “Most importantly, I want to thank all the voters of District 6 for 
the opportunity to earn their vote. Our campaign persevered through many challenges with an 
open heart and mind, integrity and hard work. We did this together. I look forward to rolling 
up my sleeves to continue to fight for all students in PUSD, Because Our Kids Are Worth It!”

 In The Realistic Joneses, we meet Bob and Jennifer and their new neighbors, John and Pony, two suburban couples who have even more in common than their identical homes 
and their shared last names. As their relationships begin to irrevocably intertwine, the Joneses must decide between their idyllic fantasies and their imperfect realities. This contemporary 
comedy explores how our joys and sorrows - and how we choose to face them - can come to define our lives.
