Five candidates for the three seats on the Pacifica City Council met with dozens of potential constituents over the weekend at the Sharp Park Golf Course restaurant for a public forum. It was a chance for candidates to discuss their thoughts on the biggest issues on the coast and how they plan to address them. 

Robby Bancroft and Christine Boles are running for the seat in District 2. Paul Chervatin and incumbent Councilmember Sue Beckmeyer are looking to represent District 5. And Mayor Mary Bier is running unopposed in District 3. More than 70 people attended the meeting and had the option to buy and eat breakfast during the two-hour event. The forum was hosted and moderated by Pacifica Democrats and streamed live on Pacific Coast TV.
