Sixteen candidates have qualified as candidates for four Huntington Beach city council seats in the Nov. 8 general election, but the filing period has been extended until Wednesday at 5 p.m. because an eligible incumbent council member – Kim Carr – didn’t file for re-election.

Carr is the Democratic candidate for the 36th District state Senate District seat, facing Republican nominee Janet Nguyen.

Two have qualified for the city attorney position: incumbent Michael Gates and challenger Scott Field.

According to the city clerk’s office, the council field – so far – is as follows:

  • Bobby Britton
  • Brian Burley
  • Patrick Burns
  • Gina Clayton-Tarvin
  • David Clifford
  • Vera Fair
  • Jeffrey Hansler
  • Amory Hanson
  • Jill Hardy 
  • Kenneth Inouye
  • Robert Reeder
  • Oscar Rodriguez
  • Tony Strickland
  • Gabrielle Samiy
  • Gracey Van Der Mark
  • Mike Vogler.
