Election Season Begins

As part of The Malibu Times coverage of the upcoming City Council election on Nov. 6, the newspaper will be interviewing each of the five candidates and publishing Q&As. The candidates are vying for two seats vacated by Lou La Monte and Laura Rosenthal.

The first interview will appear in the Sept. 27 issue, and will continue in the editions leading up to the election. 

The randomly selected order is as follows:

1. Jim Palmer

2. Mikke Pierson

3. Lance Simmens


4. Karen Farrer 

5. Olivia Damavandi

(Be sure to check out The Malibu Times’ Instagram—@malibutimes—for a look at how the order was determined.)

The candidates will also be participating in forums; two more have been announced so far. The first will be held by the Malibu Association of Realtors at the HRL Laboratories Auditorium (2011 Malibu Canyon Road) on Wednesday, Oct. 3, from 6-8 p.m. The second will be the Malibu Democratic Club Forum on Sunday, Oct. 7, from 1:30-4:30 p.m. at Malibu Public Library (23519 W.
