Michael Feinstein To Launch City Council Campaign Today

Mirror Staff

Former Santa Monica mayor and Council member Michael Feinstein will announce his 2014 City Council campaign today, June 17.

Feinstein served two terms on the Santa Monica City Council from 1996 to 2004 and served as Mayor from 2000 to 2002. 

The location and schedule of the announcement and kickoff is meant to recall achievements from Feinstein's first two terms in office, and reflect values and goals of his campaign this year:

5 pm: Gather at Santa Monica City Hall, at Ken Genser Square

5:30 pm: Walk to Tongva Park

5:45 pm: Press conference at Tongva Park

6:15 pm: Free community dinner at Tongva Park

8 pm: After party at Chez Jay's

The choice of Tongva Park is meant to recall Feinstein's role in the City's purchase of the RAND land in 1999 and ultimately build a park there instead of a proposed plan to possibly bring 305,000 square feet of office space up to 84' high.

Hosting an organic community dinner in the park (and an after-party nearby) reflects Feinstein's hope that his campaign can help bring together a community he believes is deeply divided over development issues.

wow - he helped enable the 84' high wall of condos on Ocean Ave from Pico to Chez Jay instead of advocating for adaptive reuse of the old Rand Building. Why would we want to bring back the old guard that got us into this mess in the first place?

I say bring back Ruth Yanatta. If anyone could bring the people together, it would be she.

Same old corrupt fuddy duddies over and over. Can't we get some new people in local politics? It's all the same old faces that screwed this town up and they're back for another feeding frenzy at our (the taxpayers) expense.

Not this fool again? Didn't $30,000 disappear when he was in office?

I look forward to your rally and voting for you in November. I really miss your free from developer worship or lockstep pro developer vote on the City Council.
