• Mayor Carmelita Garcia announces run for Assembly

    In a brief announcement on Facebook, Pacific Grove Mayor Carmelita Garcia announced on Thanksgiving that she is running for the Assembly seat soon to be vacated by Bill Monning. Monning is running for State Senate, a decision he made a number of months ago.

    The Assembly seat will go to the voters in June, 2012 while Mayor Garcia’s term is up in November, 2012. There have been no other announcements from potential candidates for her office as mayor.

    Santa Cruz County Supervisor Mark Stone has also declared that he is running for Monning’s seat. Santa Cruz City Councilwoman Lynn Robinson also declared her candidacy in August, 2011 but dropped out of the race barely a month later.

    Mayor Garcia has promised an interview on Monday, Nov. 28. Both Monning and Garcia have Facebook pages for their respective campaigns.
