Running for Santa Clarita City Council can be rough. Just ask first time candidate Jon Hatami (second from right).
“I’m new to this whole political thing. And there is a lot of meanness. A lot of aggression. A lot of issues and things I think that make a lot of new people like me not be a part of politics,” said Hatami.
Current Mayor Laurie Ender, herself a candidate for reelection, said the way she’s seen Hatami be treated is similar to when she ran four years ago.
