    With little more than 1,000 ballots left to count, three challengers and one incumbent have sealed their wins in the race for four City Council seats.

    After 755 ballots were counted Tuesday, Phil Brock leads with 18,930 votes, nearly 1,100 votes more than second-place finisher Gleam Davis, with 17,835 votes.

    Dear Editor,

    Despite the backing of the usual suspects (SMRR, Santa Monica Forward, the Democratic Club and assorted politicians) three of the four incumbent Councilmembers lost their seats ("Santa Monica Voters Usher In New Era," November 6, 2020).

    Why?

    First and foremost is the bungling of the riots on May 31 and the lack of a follow-up investigation.

    For the past ten years the Transparency Project has researched and reported on the increasing amount of PAC money spent on Santa Monica City Council elections.

    It took increasing amounts of contributions or a candidate's personal money to win. The more money spent; the better the chances of getting elected. The same with endorsements from SMRR, unions, political parties and prominent elected officials.

    Until 2020, when voters upended the system ("Santa Monica Voters Usher In New Era," November 6, 2020).

    Santa Monica voters mounted a revolt at the polls in the November 3 election, ousting three City Council incumbents -- as many in one race as have been defeated in the past 26 years.

    With a record 50,250 votes counted as of Friday afternoon, challengers Phil Brock, Christine Parra and Oscar de la Torre continued building on what has become an insurmountable lead in the race for four full-term Council seats.

    Voters on Tuesday soundly rejected a ballot measure that have would let California cities expand rent control in a state where residents are grappling with rising housing costs.

    Proposition 21 would have let cities limit rent hikes on properties that are more than 15 years old. People who own one or two single-family homes would have been exempt.

    “No” votes led early and the lead expanded to 59% after more than 10 million ballots were counted.
