Town Council President's Letter: October 2016

Greetings Clairemont News Readers!

It's October, and with our kids trick-or-treating soon it might be useful to partake in some neighborhood safety measures.

CTC Sergeant-at-Arms Steph Groce is organizing the Stay SAFE (Self and Family Expo) event on Saturday, October 22nd, from 2pm to 5pm at the North Clairemont Park & Rec Center. For more information, email

October also means we are getting into the home stretch of this year's election season.

With dozens of state and local propositions on the ballot, Voice of San Diego has you covered. Here's their guide to state propositions, and here's their guide to all the local propositions.

Also, you'll likely want to make sure your voter registration is up-to-date before you head to the polls. Check to make sure your registration status is correct at the San Diego County Registrar of Voters website, and if you need to update or change any information, you can register to vote online.

Some dates to keep in mind:

Oct 10: First day Vote-by-Mail ballots are available (you can also vote early then, too)
Oct 24: Last day to register to vote in this election
Nov 1: Last day to submit written request for vote-by-mail ballot
Nov 8: Election Day

Moving on, our next Clairemont Town Council meeting will be held on Thursday, October 6th at 6:30pm in the Cadman Elementary cafeteria. Congressman Scott Peters will join us as our guest speaker, and we will also hear from representatives from the Neighborhoods First Coalition.

Also, our October meeting is the last day to declare your intention to run for one of our Town Council offices. Treasurer, Sergeant-at-Arms, Director Central, Director East, and Director-at-Large seats A, B, and C are up for election as 2-year terms. Director North and Director-at-Large seat D are up for election as 1-year terms.

Finally, shout out to Ann Gomez, William Mallory, and Arianne Leigh -- our awesome librarians at all three of our Clairemont branch locations: Balboa, Clairemont, and North Clairemont. There's always something going on at every one of our libraries for you and your family, so please visit and frequent them. Need to apply for a library card? You can do that here.

Working for you, Clairemont!
Ryan Trabuco
