Santa Monica-Malibu school board member Oscar de la Torre is stepping down from his daytime job at the end of the year.

De la Torre is head of the nonprofit Pico Youth & Family Center.

He founded it in 2002.

For almost two decades … the center has served as a place for Pico youth to learn leadership, technology and arts skills. 

The Pico neighborhood is less affulent than most in Santa Monica … kids there oftenstruggle with gun violence and gang activity.

De la Torre, a three term member of the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District board of education, said he plans to permanently step down and start a consulting firm with his wife Maria Loya.

He said he may also run for City Council if an appellate court judge rules in favor the lawsuit against the city of Santa Monica by Kevin Shenkman … a malibu attorney … 

Shenkman so far has won his lawsuit … which argues that Santa Monica residents should vote for councilmembers to represent their neighborhoods, not the city as a whole. 

The city appealed the ruling.

If de la Torre wins … he would have to resign from our local school board.


A temporary skateboard park is under design at Malibu Bluffs Park.

Once the the permanent skate park is completed … the temporary skate park will become the permanent parking and drop-off/pick-up area.
