Del Mar City Council election will be held

Three candidates will seek votes for three seats on the Del Mar City Council Nov. 6: Al Corti, incumbent Don Mosier and Sherryl Parks.

Mayor Carl Hilliard and councilmember Mark Filanc have decided not to seek re-election.

Even though only three candidates are vying for three seats an election will still be held as the election will determine the order that these candidates will serve as the Deputy Mayor and Mayor, based on City Council policy.

The City will also have two propositions on the November ballot. Proposition H, brought forward through the Citizens’ Initiative Process, asks voters “shall the ordinance which proposes the regulation of medical marijuana compassionate use dispensaries and alters the City’s sales tax laws be adopted?” A full copy of the proposed ordinance is available in the City Clerk’s office and at

Proposition J will ask voters “shall Ordinance 869 approving the Village Specific Plan as approved by the Del Mar City Council, which, without raising taxes, implements the Del Mar Community Plan by: creating a pedestrian-oriented downtown with plazas, wider sidewalks and landscaping; improving the Village’s appearance and economic viability; increasing public parking availability; improving traffic flow, bike and pedestrian safety; reducing air and water pollution; and providing development controls, and traffic and parking solutions to ensure neighborhood compatibility, be adopted?” A full copy of the proposed ordinance is available in the City Clerk’s office and at
