Patch will be querying the candidates vying for the Redondo Beach City Council and mayoral positions as the March 5 election nears.
We'll be gathering biographical information and presenting the candidates with a questionnaire to help voters understand where they stand on the issues important to Redondo Beach.
Only one of the races—the District 2 council race—will have an incumbent running for reelection meaning the remaining races are wide open. Mayor Mike Gin, as well as councilmen Steve Aspel and Steve Diels, will all be termed out; however, Aspel will run for the mayoral post.
We're asking for your help. What questions do you want us to ask the mayoral and city council candidates?
Here's the field for the March 5 municipal elections and, if available, links to their campaign web sites or Facebook pages so you can become familiar with their politics:
District 1 Candidates:
District 2 Candidates:
District 4 Candidates:
The winners of the mayoral race and city council races will serve four-year terms, which will end March 31, 2017.
If you have a question for these candidates, leave them in the comments section of this article by Friday at 5 p.m. Please indicate the specific race or group of candidates you want the questions posed to.
As election day draws near, check back with Patch for candidate interviews and answers to your questions.
