After Altadena Town Council elections last June, two of Altadena’s nine census tracts were left without a second member because no one stood for election in those tracts.
The vacancies were remedied at Tuesday’s Town Council meeting with the appointment of life-long Altadenan Richard Moon to join Amy Cienfuegos in 4611 and Altadena Chamber of Commerce member Ed Meyers to represent 4601 with Gretchen Saeger. Dwight Equitz also stood for the 4601 seat.
All three men gave statements, with Moon stressing his involvement with the community and support of the recent ballot issue to divide the Pasadena Unified School District into sub-districts.
Equitz stated his desire to be part of the team in carrying out the recently published vision statement, and Meyers emphasized his success as a Chamber of Commerce member in working with governmental agencies and promoting Altadena business.
Tract 4601 is east of Lake and north of Mendocino, comprising most of northeast Altadena. Gino Sund previously represented the tract on the Town Council.
Tract 4611 is bounded by Fair Oaks, Woodbury, Lake and Mariposa. Allan Wasserman previously represented that tract.
