Today: Our Santa Monica City Council Candidate Forum


Join us today at 6:30 p.m. at the Main Branch Library in Downtown Santa Monica (601 Santa Monica Boulevard, Santa Monica) for a chance to hear the 14 candidates running for three seats on the Santa Monica City Council talk about issues that affect your daily lives.

The event, co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Santa Monica, is free and open to the public, but seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Get there early for a seat. If you can’t make it, we will be livestreaming the event at and will later put up a recording of the event on this site.

The forum will include questions from members of Santa Monica Next, the League of Women Voters of Santa Monica, and Santa Monica Spoke, a chapter of the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition. The event will be co-moderated by the president of the League of Women Voters of Santa Monica and a represented of Santa Monica Next. You can read about them both here.

The City of Santa Monica will provide free bike valet at the library today. While the valet is for the City’s Pedestrian Action Plan workshop, which starts at 5:30 p.m., the valet is for use by the general public and will be working until 9:30 p.m, so please feel free to use it.

Otherwise, the library is particularly accessible by public transit. The Main Branch library is served by Big Blue Bus lines 7 and 10. Big Blue Bus lines 1, 2, 3, 8, and 9 stop within a short walking distance.

For more information about the Candidate Forum, please email Barbara Inatsugu at or Jason Islas at

If you haven’t already, please don’t forget to register to vote at your current address before October 20!
