Candidates qualified for Los Alamitos Council election, so far

The twist in the City Council election in Los Alamitos is that incumbent Mark Chirco*, although not termed out, announced at the regular meeting of the Los Alamitos City Council on August 15 that he has decided not to run. That leaves his District Five Council seat open and extends the filing deadline to Wednesday, August 17.

According to Los Alamitos City Clerk Windemere Quintanar, there are currently two people qualified to fun for the District Five seat:

The other Council seat up for election is District Four, currently represented by Mayor Shelley Hasselbrink, who has no opponents qualified.

Orange County Breeze encourages all the candidates to submit a candidate statement for consideration for publication here at oc-breeze.com by sending the statement in pdf or Word format to [email protected]. Photos are welcome.


* According to Los Alamitos City Clerk Windemere Quintanar, “Mark Chirco was elected at large. We do not have any incumbents in District 5; therefore, we will not be extending the Candidate filing period.”
