The Nov. 6 ballot will include Measure V to change from the at-large San Clemente City Council to by-district Councilmembers. If district elections win, the city could create five districts. Councilmembers will be required to live within the district. If Measure V passes, starting in 2020 voters in two of the newly created districts will elect their Councilmembers. In 2022, the three remaining districts will elect their Councilmembers. Recently, and without a vote of the residents, Costa Mesa, Dana Point, Fullerton, Lake Forest, Placentia and Stanton have implemented district elections. The measure lets you make the decision.
If the current system wasn’t broke, we wouldn’t be asking you to fix it. We have tried the current system for years. A district election ensures Councilmembers will live near you and will represent the residents of the district. Vote yes on Measure V.
