District 7 Debate to Focus on Finances and Development

Update:  The list of candidates names was updated to show Sheena Tahilramani, not Anthony Miranda, as one of the candidates.  We regret the error.

The five candidates running for Terry Tornek’s vacated seat following his election as mayor of the city of Pasadena will be vying for votes tonight at Caltech.  Tornek appointed Innovate Pasadena founder Andy Wilson to the seat.  On Tuesday March 7, the voters will decide who will be their chosen candidate to represent them.

A debate is takinOKNA Debateg place between Andy Wilson, Phil Hosp, Alejandro Mechaca, Sheena Tahilramani, and Bryan Witt.  Wilson and Hosp are considered to be the front runners.

The debate will be moderated by yours truly, Tami DeVine, president of Crown City Network.  It’s taking place this evening at 7pm at Caltech’s Beckman Institute, not to be confused with Beckman Auditorium.

The debate will include questions from the moderator as well as questions from the audience.  The Oak Knoll Neighborhood Association and Madison Heights Neighborhood Association are hosting the debate.

Organizers say how the city handles finances and development are issues that concern many in the community, and that they anticipate district 7 residents will ask plenty of questions about these and other important issues.

    Tami – I’d like to request a correction on this article which did not get the candidates for D7 correct. “A debate is taking place between Andy Wilson, Phil Hosp, Alejandro Mechaca, Anthony Miranda and Bryan Witt.”

    You left out myself as a D7 candidate (Sheena Tahilramani) and Anthony Miranda is not a candidate in this race.

    How does a legitimate news organization get the names of the candidates running in a local election this wrong? Not only have several articles been written about the D7 race but this is all public record. This article mentions a candidate that isn’t even running and leaves out a candidate that is actually running (me!). I have requested a correction several times at this point to no response. not only that, the correction comment I left on the website appears to have been read and deleted without fixing the issue. No credibility.
