WISPPA's purpose is to push for accountability, integrity, and transparency in South Pasadena government, and to actively encourage strong, well-qualified candidates, and especially women, to run for City Council and to serve on City Commissions.
WISPPA also seeks to offer opinions and advocate for positions concerning the well-being of the City of South Pasadena, and to provide information to the electorate regarding City Council candidates and city issues.
Although WISPPA works to encourage women to run for local office, it does not endorse, support or oppose any specific candidate.
