Three candidates will be running for two seats on the Walnut City Council on April 8. The candidates are: Robert Pacheco, Mary Su and Betty Tang.
Su will be running for her third term; she has served eight years. Su is the first Asian woman elected to the Walnut City Council.
Pacheco, 79, was appointed to the five-member City Council in July to take the spot of Tom King, who resigned and moved to Orange County. When he was appointed, he said he would run for the full term.
Tang is the lone challenger. Tang is president of Walnut High School’s Chinese American Parents Association and has been a resident of the city for 20 years, according to her campaign website.
