Running for City Council in Santa Cruz

Talk of the Bay, with Chris Krohn, Tuesday, September 27th, 5-6 PM

Sean Maxwell, center, discusses local issues with neighbors.

Sean Maxwell is running for a city council seat. He would be the first person ever to represent what is being called the 6th District. The wild district map (above) appears to do the opposite of what was intended, to keep communities of interest together. Instead, this carved and contrived area splits the circles neighborhood in half,  as Mission Street urban corridor acts as a political midriff, the district continues to snake up the westside capturing UCSC’s family student and faculty housing, but zero student housing is included. At least three communities of interest are simply shredded.

Maxwell is a small business owner and general contractor who has resided for the past 20 years in Surf City. He’s also a renter, father of two, and he graduated with an economics degree from UC Santa Cruz. Maxwell currently sits on the city’s planning commission and is poised to talk about all this construction being carried out in town, as well as homelessness, economic development, and the city’s tense relationhip with UCSC. Sean Maxwell will be host Chris Krohn’s guest for the entire hour on this week’s “Talk of the Bay,” Tuesday from 5-6pm on KSQD 90.5 and KSQD.org
