Jonathan Horton announced his candidacy for the District 4 seat on the Pasadena City Council, in the November 2024 election.
By News Desk
Pasadena Human Relations Commissioner, Jonathan Horton, has launched his campaign for the District 4 seat on the Pasadena City Council. District 4 covers the east side of Pasadena. It is bounded by Washington, Palo Verde, Villa, Roosevelt and Michillinda.
A Pasadena resident of nineteen years and an alumni of Pasadena public schools, Jonathan Horton spent the early years of his career advocating for the residents of California’s 28th Congressional District as a federal caseworker.
In a statement on social media, Horton stated the following:
In Pasadena and much of the surrounding area, the cost of living is far too high while the supply of housing is far too low. The lack of affordability is depriving our city of its next generation of caretakers. This campaign is about changing that. It’s about preparing Pasadena for the future while honoring its history. Until the work is done, I will tirelessly advocate for swift yet responsible reform that increases quality of life for current residents and ensures prosperity for future ones.
