PPCC Candidate Statements Deadline Approaches | Pacific Palisades
The deadline to submit candidate statements for persons wishing to run for Pacific Palisades Community Council area and at-large representative seats is Thursday, August 13, at 4:30 p.m.
All nine seats are open to anyone who is at least 18 years old in September—which is when voting begins. The eight area rep seats require the person live in the area in which they are applying. The one at-large seat can be anyone who lives, owns real property or operates a business in Pacific Palisades.
“All seats are open, even if incumbents are running,” PPCC shared in an email ahead of the deadline.
There are no incumbents running in Area 6 (Via Mesa/Bluffs and the Huntington) and Area 7 (Santa Monica, Rustic and Rivas Canyon, as well as the Will Rogers State Historic Park area).
“The elected representatives will be the voice of their constituents, bring issues to the PPCC, learn first-hand about policy and land-use topics affecting the Palisades, and vote on matters of community-wide interest,” PPCC continued.
