July 15, 2014 – Voters will have a chance to hear from candidates aiming to win one of three open Santa Monica City Council seats in November’s election at a Candidate’s Forum this month.
The forum hosted by Santa Monica political group Residocracy on July 28 from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Main Library’s Martin Luther King Auditorium will give candidates the chance to address the public and field questions.
All candidates who have filed to run with the City Clerk are invited to attend, and the event is open to the public.
They include two of the three incumbents – Mayor Pam O’Connor and Kevin McKeown – Planning Commissioners Sue Himmelrich, Jennifer Kennedy and Richard McKinnon, former Mayor Mike Feinstein and Parks and Rec Commissioner Phil Brock.
Other potential candidates who pulled papers Monday were former Lookout columnist Frank Gruber, a leader of the movement to turn Santa Monica Airport into a Park; activist Jerry Rubin; physical therapist Ken Robin and Whitney Scott Bain.
To qualify for the ballot, potential candidates must submit petitions signed by at least 100 registered Santa Monicvoters by August 8.
If incumbent Council member Bob Holbrook decides not to run, the filing period would be extended until August 13..
