By popular demand, the CRA is happy to announce that our Holiday Gala event will be at La Playa Hotel, Saturday, December 1st. Your CRA Board and the hotel staff are working to make this an enchanting evening with friends, food and spirits!
Dear CRA friends,
The location of our Dines Out! has been changed. The Village Corner chef has moved to the old Lafayette Bakery location, just a few doors north of The Village Corner on Dolores. Soerke Peter’s new restaurant is a French American Bistro called Etats-Unis. The menu remains the same, nothing has changed except the location.
See you at our sold-out dinner October 17 at Estat-Unis.
Every 2 years, for the past 30, the Carmel Residents Association has sponsored the Carmel Candidates Forum. These 15 Forums have allowed voters to assess candidates seeking election to mayoral and council positions. What makes this election different from the others is that for the first time in its history, Carmel will hold its Municipal Election in November, coincidental with the national election. Public interest in reducing costs of our municipal elections made it inevitable that the stand-alone Carmel election would merge with the national as all other Monterey Peninsula cities have done.
A person or persons posting under assumed names – and using a Facebook group name similar to the CRA’s Facebook group – continues to write attack messages deriding specific city council candidates and endorsing one named mayoral candidate. These posts do not come from us. Please know that the CRA as an organization has decided to neither endorse nor oppose candidates for public office. Individually, members can, of course, endorse or oppose any candidates they wish.
Last week we reported here that CRA member Darlene Mosley was nominated to fill an open spot on the Forest and Beach Commission. This week we can confirm she was approved by the city council to join the F&B, one of Carmel’s key oversight bodies. The five commissioners, who are unpaid, serve four-year terms.
