Council Race Attracts Newcomers

Council Member Potential Candidates 2016

Malibu’s November City Council election will have three open seats, with council members Joan House and John Sibert term limited, and Council Member Skylar Peak’s seat open.

This year’s election is unique because it falls on the same year as a presidential election. In a year where national politics have been more derisive than ever, it seems likely Malibu’s local elections will see a higher voter turnout. 

Candidates were able to apply to run for election as of July 18, Monday morning. So far several candidates have pulled papers. They include:

   • Jennifer deNicola

   • Rick Mullen

   • Skylar Peak

   • Carl Randall

   • Laureen Sills

   • Jefferson “Zuma Jay” Wagner
