Meet the candidates for the Los Altos Hills City Council

Five candidates are vying for three seats on the five-member Los Altos Hills City Council. Incumbents Courtenay C. Corrigan and Roger Spreen face off against Peter Evans, Garo Kiremidjian and Michelle Wu in the Nov. 8 election.

The Town Crier asked the candidates to share their qualifications and insight into some of the issues pertinent to residents. Although a city council vote last week took a proposed ordinance change off the table, discussion of how the town regulates development of substandard lots, or those under an acre in size, remains a hot topic.

Eight candidates are running for four seats on the seven-member Mountain View City Council. Incumbents Chris Clark and John McAlister are running for re-election, and former Councilwoman Margaret Abe-Koga seeks a return to the council after a two-year absence. Joining them on the Nov. 8 ballot are Ken “Kacey” Carpenter, Greg Coladonato, Thida Cornes, Lisa Matichak and Lucas Ramirez.

The final slate of candidates on the Nov. 8 ballot is set after last week’s filing deadline. Following is a roundup of candidates vying for seats on local councils, school boards, healthcare and water districts, as well as candidates and measures at the state and regional levels.

More than 51 percent of Santa Clara County’s 788,000 registered voters cast their ballots in the June 7 California Primary Election. As of the Town Crier’s press deadline, 94 percent of the county’s ballots had been counted, according to the Registrar of Voters.

Countywide, Hillary Clinton commanded 58.8 percent of the Democratic vote, followed by Bernie Sanders at 40.5 percent. The Los Altos area gave Clinton an even stronger lead, with some local precincts reporting up to 75 percent support for the presumptive Democratic Party nominee.
