The Corona del Mar Residents Association will host a “State of Corona del Mar & 2012 City Election Information Meeting” from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday Oct. 17 at the OASIS Senior Center.
“It’s another election year for the City of Newport Beach…and this one is unlike any others,” according to an announcement made in the Fall 2012 CdMRA newsletter. “We have three candidates for three council positions and no opposition for any seat…That won’t stop us from having a Forum though. We just need to be more creative.”
Instead of a traditional council candidate forum, the CdMRA will host an event that includes a brief social session for residents to meet Mayor Nancy Gardner and the three unopposed candidates — Ed Selich and Keith Curry, both who represent parts of Corona del Mar, and newcomer Tony Petros.
There also will be information available about Neighborhood Watch and CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) programs, followed by a formal program that will examine the State of Corona del Mar.
“We discuss fire safety as a result of the recent house fire and fatality on Marguerite, crime statistics here in CdM, street safety issues such as ’same road/same rules,’ traffic and parking concerns, noise issues and more,” the newsletter said.
If you have questions, CdMRA board members advise to submit them as soon as possible. Email any questions to info at cdmra dot org or call (949) 719-9390.
The event begins with hosted refreshments from 6 to 6:30 followed by the hourlong program. The event will be held in the Evelyn Hart Event Room at the senior center at Marguerite and Fifth avenues.
