The November election filing period in Baldwin Park has closed and the names are in.
Incumbent Mayor Manuel Lozano will be running against Councilman Ricard Pacheco and local businessman and gadfly Greg Tuttle for the mayor’s seat.
Incumbents Marlen Garcia and Anthony Bejarano will also be facing off with some new faces for two open council seats. Among their competitors are Cruz Baca Sembello and City Clerk Susan Rubio.
Take a look at the entire candidate filing here:
The mayor’s race should be an interesting one with Pacheco — who has long been on the outskirts of the Council — going up against this colleague. Also, Tuttle’s presence should mix things up, considering that he’s been threatening to “clean house” for months.
The only thing that’s still unclear is exactly where Tuttle is living. He used to be a Pomona resident and his filing address on his nomination forms link to his business. But he’s said in the past he would be moving to Baldwin Park … All members of the council must be Baldwin Park residents.
As a side note, the filing period of City Clerk has been extended through Wednesday, 5 p.m.
