The City of Industry's First Council Election in 17 Years The City of Industry runs along the 10 Freeway in the San Gabriel Valley. Between 1962 and 1994, it held just one local election — with all others cancelled due to a lack of competition. Tomorrow, Industry will go to the polls for the first in 17 years -- with 125 registered voters. No less than 10 percent of them have the same name as former Mayor David Perez, who's been accused of corruption. Frank Shyong reports for the LA Times .

David Tran, Sriracha's creator, says that means he just might move his operation out of Irwindale. Frank Shyong is reporting the story for the LA Times .
