Culver City Mayor Goran Eriksson along with Civic Service Commission Chairman Albert Vera and 6 other candidates have qualified for the City Council election ballot this November.

Current Councilmember Meghan Sahli-Wells was ineligible to run due to term limits and Councilmember Thomas Small had announced he wasn't seeking a second term as he wanted to focus his efforts on Culver City Forward (CCF), where he serves as chief executive officer.
The School Board candidates include incumbents Dr. Kelly Kent and Anne Allaire as well as former board member Scott Zeidman and Paula Amezola, Parks and Recreation commissioner. All four candidates are vying for 2 open seats.
