CityTV, Santa Monica’s award-winning public access television station, is making it easy for you to hear from each of the candidates running for local office.

CityTV — working with the League of Women Voters of Santa Monica — recorded a series of five one-minute videos on a range of topics, including transportation and development, with the 14 City Council candidates. CityTV also talked to the candidates for College Board, School Board, and Rent Control Board.

What’s more, the videos are available on CityTV’s Youtube channel for the curious denizen. While the candidate videos are available at, we thought we’d put the list with links to the videos below. And, if you haven’t already, don’t forget to register to vote before the October 20 deadline.
