Candidates for the CD11 council seat Robin Rudisill and Mark Ryavec debated Thursday night at the University Synagogue in Pacific Palisades. Incumbent Mike Bonin was absent. Below are each candidates’ summary statement.
President Sarah Conner of the Pacific Palisades Residents Association, sponsor of the event, said Councilman Mike Bonin was invited in January and was later asked to name a date and his answer was that he was too busy prior to the campaign.
Councilman Mike Bonin will have a meeting 27 February, 6:30 pm at Windward School, 11350 Palms Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90066. The meet is sponsored by the Westside Regional Alliance of Neighborhood Councils. It was intended to be a debate but the original invitation asked availability of each candidate in February between 7 and 22 February and then the date was selected for 27 February. Neither Robin Rudisill nor Mark Ryavec could make that date.
