Three people apply for open San Luis Obispo City Council seat

Three people have applied for the San Luis Obispo City Council seat vacated after Jan Marx was elected mayor.

Those who filed as of the end of the application period Monday were: Patty Andreen, a former member of the San Luis Coastal Unified School District board of directors; Dan Carpenter, who finished third in the Nov. 8 election; and Kevin P. Rice, a Santa Clarita firefighter known for his support of off-road vehicles in the Oceano Dunes.

Application material from each is available to view on the city’s website.

The council will appoint their fifth member Dec. 21.
