The four candidates seeking the vacant Grover Beach City Council seat are Liz Doukas, Ronald Arnoldsen, Deborah Peterson and Karen Bright, according to City Manager Bob Perrault.
Doukas is a court reporter who ran for the council in the November election. Arnoldsen is a former Grover Beach councilman and dentist. Peterson is a real estate agent and current Grover Beach planning commissioner. Bright is also a current Grover planning commissioner who has served on the Parent Teacher Association for the Lucia Mar school district.
Three of the candidates have been interviewed by the council at a recent meeting. Bright was ill and will be interviewed May 7 -- Grover Beach’s next council meeting -- when a decision is expected.
The seat became open when councilman Larry Versaw announced he was moving out of the city limits to the Nipomo Mesa.
