The City of Oceanside will begin the transition to District Elections in November 2018. Five community workshops were held in 2017 to determine the district boundaries, and the Oceanside City Council approved the final map at the August 1, 2017 City Council meeting. Candidates running for City Council will now be required to reside in the district they want to represent.
Districts will be phased-in during the next two election cycles. Councilmembers in Districts 1 and 2 will be elected in November 2018. Councilmembers in Districts 3 and 4 will be elected in 2020.
Lawrence “Larry” Kornit, Christopher Rodriguez and Kristopher Kagan are first time City Council candidates. Terry Johnson and Dana Corso did not schedule an interview. The purpose of these interviews is to help you get to know the person who wants to lead the city for the next four years.
