Candidates
Side-by-Side

Local elections for Santa Monica, California took place on Tuesday November 4, 2014. ProCon.org has gathered views from the city council candidates into one website, so you can see what they have to say about issues in the community.

Click on a candidate, click on an issue, or take the quiz to see which candidate best matches your views on those issues. More than 600,000 people took a similar version of our quiz for the 2012 presidential election.

Click here for criteria on how candidates were selected for inclusion in our website. Candidates' responses (no more than 200 words long) and positions (pro, con, or not clearly pro or con) are taken directly from questionnaires they each completed for ProCon.org. We have edited lightly for spelling, grammar, and nothing else. Candidates Jerry Rubin and Jon Mann were not included in this resource because they failed to turn in their responses by deadline.
