Election Tuesday, July 23
The election has been somewhat heated, especially AGAINST former Republican (who reregistered as Independent for this election) mayor of Ontario, Paul Leon. Pomona is well represented in the race with councilman Freddie Rodriguez, school board member Jason Rothman, former councilperson Danielle Soto, and former aid to Nell Soto and Joe Baca Manuel Saucedo. In addition, perenniel candidate from Ontario, Paul Vincent Avila is on the ballot along with Democrats Doris Louise Wallace, and Tom Haughey, along with Republican Dorothy Pineda.
If no candidate receives over 50% of the vote (which in this 9-person election is highly likely), a runoff will be held with the top two vote getters (regardless of party) facing off.
The polls will be open from 7 am to 8 pm. If you need to find your polling place, visit www.lavote.net.
