By AMY WIMMER, Times Staff Writer
Elections begin Tuesday when polling places open in Gulfport, South Pasadena and Treasure Island.
In Gulfport, voters will select a replacement for Ward 3 Council member Lynne Brown, who is not running for re-election. Vying to succeed her are Iris Manley and Harry Brodhead, both city volunteers.
In South Pasadena, voters will decide whether to give City Commissioner Chris Burgess her second three-year term in office. She is competing against Robert Small and Diane Sheldon.
Also running for city commissioner here are Joe Catalfamo and Carol Clark, who are competing to fill the seat vacated by City Commissioner Dick Holmes. The winner in that race will earn a one-year term.
South Pasadena also will vote on four referendum questions. (See story, page XX.)
In Treasure Island, District 4 City Commissioner Barbara Blush and District 2 City Commissioner Irving S. "Butch" Ellsworth Jr. are trying to retain their seats. Ellsworth's opponent is John D. Hadsall; Blush is competing against Donald V. Callahan.
