Pacific Palisades Community Council Notice of Election Nomination

Applications for Area and At-large Representative positions now welcome

Submitted by the Pacific Palisades Community Council

Pacific Palisades Community Council (PPCC) is pleased to announce that the candidate application process is now open for community members interested in serving as PPCC Area Representative or At-large Representative.

There are eight positions for which Palisadians can run for Area Representative (one from each area/neighborhood of the Palisades delineated by the PPCCMaps on http://pacpalicc.org/index.php/area-maps/), and one position for At-large Representative. Elected Reps will serve a two-year term on the PPCCBoard.

The Palisades is divided into eight neighborhoods in which each Area Representative is responsible for serving. The Area Representative must reside within the specified area boundaries as detailed on the PPCC website at http://pacpalicc.org. The At-large Representative serves the entire community and must live, own property or run a business within Pacific Palisades.

Area and At-large Representatives will be the voice of their constituents, bring issues to the PPCC, learn first-hand about policy and land-use topics affecting the Palisades and vote on matters of community-wide interest.

All interested parties must submit a candidate’s statement with a current photograph in digital format. These will be included in election materials to be publicly distributed.  The statement shall not exceed 200 words, shall include a position statement on issues the candidate believes are important to the community and/or to his or her area, and must include the candidate’s email address as well as specific information, per the bylaws. Please see additional requirements under the Candidate Statements section from excerpts of our bylaws below, or on our website at https://pacpalicc.org.

More information:  see p. 2 for incumbents running in the election and additional definitions re eligibility and candidate requirements.

Statements must be submitted via email to info@pacpalicc.org no later than one hour before the scheduled start of the PPCC Meeting on July 28, 2022, to be held starting at 6pm by Zoom video conference (i.e., statements must be submitted no later than 5:00 pm on July 28).  [Note:  submission by other methods identified in Attachment A, e.g., hand-delivery or text message to the Chair, is not practical and therefore will not be accepted.]

For specific candidate application requirements and procedures, please view the PPCC Bylaws, Attachment A (pp. 29-36); for Area boundaries, see Appendix B (pp. 22-24): http://pacpalicc.org/index.php/council-bylaws/. Questions? Contact info@pacpalicc.org. The election of Area and At-large Representatives will take place later in August, during which time voting is open to the entire community. Look for more details in the coming weeks.

Note:  All seats are open, whether or not the incumbent is running. Incumbents are running in Areas 2, 3, 4 and 8 and for the At-large seat.  Incumbents are not running in Areas 1, 5, 6 and 7.
