Meet the Candidates and Make Your Mark on Malibu With Your Vote!

Want a chance to help determine the future of Malibu??

What would happen if a large tsunami damaged the nuclear reactor just north of Santa Barbara?   We’re right downstream.

Why are all the starfish gone from our tide pools?

If fracking for oil causes earthquakes, should we keep doing it near fault zones?

And how do you feel about increased traffic along PCH?

We have a chance to select a senator to represent Malibu and nearby areas in the California legislature.– ONE who’ll be making decisions that forever change our lives. Who will you vote for this June?

Come meet the candidates. . . all six Democrats — and ask them what they think.

We’re having a forum at 11:30 a.m., Feb. 20, at the Malibu Public Library. It’s free of charge in the Malibu Civic Center–and there will be refreshments.

That’s 11:30 THIS Saturday, Feb. 20 at the library. Help keep Malibu the beautiful home we all love.

Who will you vote for at the June Primary?
Who will you vote for at the June Primary?

Candidates include Janice Kamenir-Reznik, Shawn Bayliss, Richard Mathews, Henry Stern, David Pollock, and George Christopher Thomas.  (See poster below for photos).
There will be a pot luck display of free snacks and beverages — courtesy the Democratic Club Board of Directors — and the forum will begin after opening remarks.  The event will be moderated by Lance Simmens, a Democratic Club board member who has spent nearly four decades involved in public service at all levels of government.  Simmens directed Gasland Grassroots, an organization devoted to public education on fracking.  He was state director of Citizens Trade Campaign, an agency set up to defeat the Trans Pacific Partnership. He served Gov. Jerry Brown as Deputy Director of Communications for the California High-Speed Rail Authority, and spent fifteen years in Federal service, largely serving in senior intergovernmental affairs positions for four Cabinet Secretaries.
What do these candidates stand for, and who can best represent Malibu?

Following the Forum,  Malibu Democratic Club members will elect officers and board members for 2016 and — depending on attendance — the club may decide to endorse a candidate to represent the 27th Senatorial district.

All incumbent board officers are running to remain in office.  They include Ann Doneen, president; Ted Vaill, vice president; Roy van de Hoek, secretary; Doug Rosen, treasurer.

Board members running to remain in office include all officers plus Dorothy Reik, Jennifer deNicola, Carol Moss, Stephen Frantz, Ph.D., Tracey Burton,  Sam Hall Kaplan,  Marcia Hanscom,
