Santa Monica Election Results

SMRR is continuing its decades-old domination of the Santa Monica City Council. SMRR-endorsed incumbents Sue Himmelrich and Kevin McKeown were reelected, and SMRR-endorsed newcomer Greg Morena was newly elected and will replace Pam O'Connor.

Naomi Sultan, Nicole Phillis and Steve Duron were voted to the Santa Monica Rent Control Board.

Louise Jaffe, Nancy Greenstein, Sean Roy and Barry Snell were voted to the Santa Monica College Board.

Laurie Lieberman, Richard Tahvildaran-Jesswein, Oscar de la Torre and Craig Foster were voted to the SMMUSD School Board.

Measure SM, which for the next 10 years will require a supermajority on the City Council to approve development agreements for projects exceeding the city's existing height and density limits, passed with a majority of 71.04%.

Measure TL (term limits) was a big win with 73.6% "yes" votes. (But it won't be retroactive and means that all current incumbents are eligible to serve for another 12 years).

Yet another school bond (this one projected to cost taxpayers up to an astounding $1 billion) was approved by a resounding "yes", with 70.36%.

77.59% of Santa Monica voters approved Measure RR, which means that U.S. citizenship will longer be required to serve on the City’s Library Board, Personnel Board, and Airport Commission.
