Carmel Valley planning board election features contested seat

By Karen Billing

The Carmel Valley Community Planning Board will hold elections for eight board seats on March 28 at the Carmel Valley Library from 5-5:30 p.m. Voters must have identification to prove local residency.

Neighborhood 5 is the only one of the eight seats up for election that is contested with candidates Debbie Lokanc and Elissa Krasenbaum. Lokanc is the incumbent and a realtor; Krasenbaum is an art educator who said she is a “concerned resident interested in continuing to see Carmel Valley grow and become more of a community.”

Other new candidates include Jonathan Tedesco for the Pacific Highlands Ranch district 12 seat that is currently vacant and Brian Brady who seeks Jill McCarty’s business seat as she has termed out after eight consecutive years of service.

Tedesco has lived in the Carmel Valley area for 10 years and his family has lived in North County for about 25 years. He has served on several homeowners associations and nonprofit organization boards. He and his family live in the Arabella community of PHR.

With the business seat, Brady would represent Kilroy Realty on the board.

Unopposed candidates need just one vote to be elected and they include Neighborhood 1 representative Rick Newman, Nancy Novak for Neighborhood 3. Chris Moore for Neighborhood 6,  Laura Copic for Neighborhood 10, investor representative Rodney Hunt and developer representative Allen Kashani.

The planning board meeting will follow on March 28 at a new time and location. The meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. at Ocean Air School (11444 Canter Heights Drive, San Diego, 92130). The One Paseo traffic discussion is on the agenda so far.
