Felicia Williams has withdrawn from the race for State Assembly District 41 and is now running for re-election for Pasadena City Council in District 2 where she is the incumbent.
John Harabedian has withdrawn from the State Senate race for the 25th District and is now running for State Assembly District 41.
In a statement to our newsroom, Williams said:
After much thought and hearing from my constituents, friends, and supporters, I have decided, to run for re-election to the Pasadena City Council. With a majority of the Council seats up for election in 2024, I think we need stability and continuity on the Council to finish the great work that Mayor Gordo started in 2020. I plan to continue my thoughtful and balanced approach to City policy where I listen to all perspectives to inform my decisions. I want to thank all of my supporters who are continuing to support me through this transition, including Senator Anthony Portantino. I have learned so much from our Foothill and High Desert communities during my Assembly campaign that I will incorporate into my professional and Council work to ensure we work together to have a strong voice in Sacramento.”
In a post on social media, Harabedian stated the following:
After talking to friends, neighbors, and supporters, I believe that I can make the largest difference by fighting for our communities in the State Assembly.”
Who else will switch? We are waiting!
