Your Chance to Ask 2018 Election Candidates a Question

Calling on questions for City Council, Rent Control Board and School Board candidates. 

Sam Catanzaro

Election season is approaching and for voters, arriving at the polls informed is just as important as going to the polls in the first place.

The Santa Monica Mirror will be sitting down with every candidate running for City Council, Rent Control Board and School Board for a 10-minute question and answer session that will be streamed live and posted online after for residents to watch. Each candidate will be asked the same set of questions, depending on the respective race they are running in.

We are calling on Santa Monica residents and our readers to submit questions they would like asked to these candidates. These questions should reflect a pressing issue facing Santa Monica and ask candidates how they intend to address the particular issue.

We will be broadcasting and interviewing the City Council candidates on October 8, 9 and 10. The candidates for this race are Sue Himmelrich (incumbent), Ashley Powell, Geoffrey Neri, Kevin McKeown (incumbent), Greg Morena, Pam O’Connor (incumbent) and Scott Bellomo. Questions for City Council candidates must be submitted by Friday, October 5 at 5 p.m.

We will be broadcasting and interviewing the Rent Control Board candidates on October 15, 16 and 17. The candidates for this race are Steve Duron (incumbent), Nicole Phillis (incumbent), Jon Mann, Naomi Sultan, and Lori Brown. Questions for Rent Control candidates must be submitted by Friday, October 12 at 5 p.m.

We will be broadcasting and interviewing the School Board candidates on October 22, 23 and 24. The candidates for this race are Laurie Lieberman (incumbent) ,Craig Foster (incumbent), Oscar de la Torre (incumbent), Richard Tahvildaran-Jesswein (incumbent) and Ann Maggio Thanawalla. Questions for these candidates must be submitted by Friday, October 19 at 5 p.m.

To submit questions, email sam@mirrormediagroupla.com with “Political Forum Question” in the subject line. Questions can also be sent by commenting on our Facebook page or by sending us a Facebook (facebook.com/smmirror/) or Twitter (twitter.com/Smmirror).
