Pixie Boyden, Candidate for Pasadena City Council District 1

Pixie Boyden, a seasoned community activist/organizer who brings more than 12 years of dedicated service to Northwest Pasadena has thrown her hat into the ring for a city council seat in District 1. Creating “meaningful partnerships to create effective plans/projects that increase investment of community members” is just one of her goals. “I believe that sustainable solutions tend to be those most closely aligned in grassroots processes where collective effort steers the innovation process to solve problems. With a plan to work ‘out of the box’ to engage our community to address the challenges of underemployment and unemployment, neighborhood sustainability, affordable housing, and safety, I intend to start to minimize the impacts to our community. I have served on many City of Pasadena and Pasadena Unified School District Taskforces, Commissions, and Committees since 2002 that have direct positive impact to our community.” In addition to her political service commitment to Pasadena, my non-profit board service covers a wide range of impact interest that will be an asset for our District, her experience with and knowledge of city operations coupled with a strong understanding of community needs..” will allow me to bring the right resources to the table to make the change that is needed. I have built positive working relationships with both City departments and community activists over the last 12 years that will infuse hope, integrity, and creativity for District #1.”
Ms. Boyden is currently employed by USC Rossier School of Education and a Northwest Commission member in 2002 and is also a member of the Rose Bowl Operating Committee.
