Bio: John Mazza did not enter the race until mid-March after Bill Winokur dropped out. His name will not appear on the ballot, so voters must write his name in. Mazza is a regular at City Council and Planning Commission meetings, and calls the current council “pro-growth,” while he said he supports “planned growth.” Mazza campaigned with Malibu CAN to defeat Measure M. Mazza moved to Malibu in 1972.

Major endorsements: Emily Harlow, former planning commissioners Robert Adler and Richard Carrigan, Malibu CAN, Angeles Chapter of the Sierra Club, Johnny Fain.

Quote: “I think I’m a long shot, but there are enough people in Malibu who remember Measure M.”
