City Council

The City of Pacifica is governed by a five-member city council. Beginning with the general municipal election in November 2020, the City of Pacifica transitioned from at-large to district-based elections.  With district-based elections, each of five councilmembers are elected by voters within that candidate's district. The City Council selected the sequencing of elections for the districts such that District 1 and District 4 held elections for City Council seats in November 2020. Districts 2, 3 and 5 will be up for election for City Council seats in November 2022. For more information about City of Pacifica's district-based elections, visit the District Based City Council Elections webpage.  For more information on the Redistricting Process based on 2020 Census data, visit the Redistricting webpage.

The mayor is selected from among members of the city council by majority vote of the council. The mayor serves a one-year term beginning in December of each year. Listed below is the current structure of the Pacifica City Council, with term expiration dates included.
