City Council Nomination Period Extended

Council applications are now accepted until Wednesday, but dozens of nominations are already in for the Rent Control Board, Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District and Santa Monica College District.

The Santa Monica City Council nomination deadline has been extended to 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday. So far, 20 candidates have filed to compete for the four City Council seats up for election Nov. 6.

UPDATE: The city extended the council nomination deadline because two incumbents did not file for re-election. Election code therefore mandates the nomination period extend by 5 days, said assistant city clerk Denise Anderson-Warren, so that nonincumbents may file for candidacy. The two incumbents who did not file for re-election this year are Richard Bloom and Bobby Shriver.

See below for a list of candidates who have filed as of Friday, the original deadline for nomination applications.

Nominations for the Santa Monica Rent Control Board, Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District and Santa Monica College District closed on schedule, however. See below for a full list of candidates.

Up for grabs this year are four seats on the City Council and two on the Rent Control Board and three each on the school and college boards.
