CANCELLED
CANDIDATE FORUM FOR THE PVHA DIRECTORS ELECTION IN THE PVE CITY COUNCIL CHAMBERS originally scheduled ON THURSDAY NOVEMBER 21, 2019 is Cancelled

Palos Verdes Residents for Responsible Government (PVrrg) believes that an informed electorate is the key to effective democracy. An important election is coming up on January 14, 2020 in Palos Verdes Estates and Miraleste. All five Board of Directors Seats for the Palos Verdes Homes Association are being contested. Six candidates have collected at least 100 signatures of PVHA members, including three incumbents. Because the 50% +1 quorum requirement has not been met since 2009, PVHA has not had a valid election since 2009. Thus all current members of the Board have been appointed by the Board, and never elected. This election is important because for the first time ever there will be a ballot initiative to lower the 50% quorum in the By-Laws to 35%. PVrrg is supportive of this ballot initiative in order to allow PVHA to act as a democracy; however, PVrrg takes no position on supporting individual candidates.

PVrrg as a group does not endorse any candidates, although some of our members may do so as individuals. In the coming months, PVrrg will provide information on this website to help inform the public on each candidate’s positions of issue of interest to the public. This includes such information as:

  • Statements from each Candidate describing why they’d like you to consider voting for them (as well as photo and bio) — click here

  • Responses from each candidate to specific questions about recent issues of interest — click here

  • League of Women Voters of Palos Verdes Peninsula and San Pedro may host a Candidate Forum in PVE City Council Chambers in December. We will confirm the details on the event once finalized, and if the event occurs, we will post a video of the event in the week following the forum.
