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.

All four candidates ran for the same seats two years ago.

Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday. In South Pasadena, voters cast ballots at City Hall, 7047 Sunset Drive S, or Bethany Tower, 880 Oleander Way S, depending on their voting district.

In Gulfport, the polling places are: Ward 1, Gulfport Recreation Center, 5730 Shore Blvd.; Ward 2, Gulfport Presbyterian Church, 5313 27th Ave. S; Ward 3, Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church, 5800 15th Ave. S; Ward 4, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 5425 Gulfport Blvd.
