Del Mar council calls general municipal election


Three Del Mar City Council seats will be on the ballot this election season. As part of the June 6 consent calendar, a list of items approved with a single vote and no discussion, the council unanimously voted to call the Nov. 8 general municipal election. The local election will be consolidated with the statewide general election and conducted by the San Diego County Registrar of Voters.

The terms of Mayor Sherryl Parks, Councilman Al Corti and Councilman Don Mosier end this year.

A resident of Del Mar since 1974, Parks was elected to the council in 2012. This is her first term as mayor. Corti, a Del Mar resident for more than two decades, was also elected to the council in 2012. He served as mayor last year. Mosier moved to Del Mar in 1985 and was first elected to the council in 2008. He served as mayor in 2011.

Nomination papers, along with an informational packet for council candidates, will be available from the City Clerk during regular business hours beginning July 18. The deadline for filing nomination papers is 5 p.m. Aug. 12. If nomination papers for an incumbent are not filed by the deadline, however, the voters have until 5 p.m. on Aug. 17 to nominate candidates other than the incumbent for elective office.
