Update:  Pasadena Star News confirms Wilson misconduct

Pasadena councilman twice applied for jobs with city’s closest partners

"Pasadena Councilman Andy Wilson sought three jobs in the last year from entities with business before the council and twice sent out his resume from his city-issued email address."


Andy Wilson Tried to Quit the City Council

While on the City Council, Wilson sought employment opportunities that would have conflicted with his duties to residents as a councilmember.

On June 26, 2016, Wilson applied to be Executive Director of the Tournament of Roses, a position that would have paid $350,000.

Wilson also applied to be Executive Director of the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport, a position that would have paid more than $285,000 and which is governed by a joint powers agreement that includes the City of Pasadena.

Either of these positions would have required Wilson to resign his position on the City Council despite his promise to serve the full remaining term he was appointed to.

If Wilson resigns, the City Charter requires his replacement to be chosen by the other City Council members, no special election is allowed.

Finally, on October 11, 2016 (a month before the filing period for this election opened) Wilson asked California's Fair Political Practices Commission if he could take a job with a city contractor while asking the government agency if his inquiry could be kept secret.
