We don’t cover hard news here at Hometown Pasadena—we’re all about the features. And so we don’t officially endorse anyone in elections. But I feel the need to unofficially sing the praises of our pal from pilates class, Lisa Link, who’s running for the San Marino Board of Education on Tuesday. For a couple of years now, we’ve gone to the same class, and I’ve come to admire so much about her. She’s smart, she’s well educated (complete with law degree), she’s a devoted but not too helicoptery mother, she’s educated about education, she’s a longtime volunteer, she’s fiscally prudent, and she cares about her community. Plus she’s better at doing the dippy-bird exercise than I am.
