Candidate Statements Due January 20

If you’ve mulled over the idea already – or even if you haven’t – now is the time to get somewhat serious about running for a seat on the Ocean Beach Town Council. You know, the folks who put up OB’s Holiday Tree and who run the annual Holiday Parade and who raise thousands of dollars for seniors and needy families.

Well, every year, half their Board is up for grabs – that’s 7 seats. And, there’s an Election Mixer coming up this Thursday night, Jan. 9 at Wonderland. It’s a chance to meet the current Board members.

Even though the election is not until the end of the month, Candidate Statements are due January 20. Here are some details from the OBTC facebook and website.

The Basics

From OBTC:

The OBTC leadership team is comprised of a Board of Directors of 15 core volunteers who guide the direction of our organization, chair our events throughout the year, and advocate on behalf of the community. Each year, half the board is up for election for a 2 year term – and folks who live or own a business in 92107 are eligible to run and vote in this election!

This means that YOU may be eligible to run for a seat on the OBTC Board of Directors. 7 total seats are up for grabs this year.

If you’re interested in running, find out more on our website and feel free to reach out to us in our messages with any questions!

If you’re considering running for the OTBC board in our elections this month – come join us at Wonderland on Thursday the 9th from 6-8p for drinks and apps. Get to know current board members, find out more about what it means to be a Director with OBTC and hang out with other community members!
