Election tidbits: San Gabriel

Like I said in an earlier post, the run-up to the March 3 election will be filled with stories from our paper on the local races.

Today’s paper featured the San Gabriel City Council election, which has four candidates running for three open seats, Robert Hong reports.

The candidates are:
Mayor Harry Baldwin, incumbent
Kevin Sawkins, incumbent
David Gutierrez, incumbent
Mario De la Torre, resident

According to Hong’s story, the major issues seem to be infrastructure improvements, revitalization of the historic Mission District and other capital improvement projects.

Now that the state budget and the stimulus plan have passed, it’ll be interesting to see how local officials intend to grab available funds.
