San Juan Capistrano Planning Commissioner Howard Hart announced Friday, Jan. 10, that he will run for a seat on the city council in this year’s election.
Hart is running for the District 5 seat currently held by Councilmember Brian Maryott. Maryott is currently gunning for Congressman Mike Levin’s spot in the U.S. House of Representatives.
The San Juan Capistrano City Council appointed Hart to the planning commission last year. Hart is active in the community and has hosted the local Coffee Chat meetings on Fridays at Hennessy’s Tavern.
Hart announced his candidacy at Coffee Chat this morning, and said that he will step down from hosting during his campaign.

  • Mr. Hart,

    I am sure you are a decent man, as you have contributed to the country through your military service, and participation in charitable organizations such as the Rotary Club.

    My concern is what I found on your twitter account.. It is very disappointing to have someone running for a seat on our city council that will so openly disparage people representing opposing political views., and re-tweeting proven false statements by online conspiracy peddlers.

    Howard, if you make it into office, please remember that you will be representing all the citizens of San Juan Capistrano, and so curbing public display of vitriolic opinions will go a long way towards the possibility of inclusive and productive council representation.

    Best Regards.
