Attorney Phil Hosp recently announced that he will seek election to the Pasadena City Council representing District 7 on the March 7, 2017 ballot.
District 7 includes the South Lake Business and Playhouse Districts, Caltech and Pasadena City College, as well as Hamilton Elementary, McKinley School, Blair International Baccalaureate School, St. Philip the Apostle School, and Polytechnic School.
District 7 is home to many of Pasadena’s most attractive neighborhoods.
“Protecting the quality of life in our neighborhoods requires a city council representative that is reliable, steady, and focused on controlling development, reducing crime and traffic, and enhancing home values and overall quality of life. My campaign for city council is about putting the needs and desires of current Pasadena residents first,” Hosp said.
Phil Hosp moved with this family to Pasadena as a teenager 20 years ago and graduated from Loyola High School. After receiving a business degree from Boston University, he served four years as a tank officer in the US Army, achieving the rank of captain. Hosp served two tours in Iraq and was awarded the Bronze Star.
After serving in the military, Hosp obtained a law degree from Loyola Law School and became an active volunteer in a number of organizations, including the Los Angeles Big Brothers Program and Loyola Law School Veteran’s Justice Project. He is currently an attorney with the international law firm of Locke Lord LLP and has been recognized by Super Lawyers magazine as a “Southern California Rising Star.”
Hosp and his wife, Vivian, along with their two preschool-age daughters, are delighted residents of the Madison Heights neighborhood in Pasadena’s District 7.
