Around The World With Skylar Peak

It may be summer in Malibu, but it was apparent that it didn’t go so swimmingly (pun intended) at the June 11th City Council meeting.

Council members, including Mayor Rick Mullen, received serious blowback from residents, clearly unhappy with the lack of support Wagner received from the City, and outraged by the treatment Wagner and his domestic partner received during the District Attorney’s raid on his properties on May 31st.

Malibu locals, including Malibu’s first mayor Walt Keller, stood at the podium demanding answers – and action re: the D.A.’s inquiries into perjury allegations and questioning Mayor Pro-Tem Wagner’s primary residence.

However, curiously, one council member, Skylar Peak, seemed to be all smiles and giggles in the face of his constituents and this very high profile political sh*t storm.

“Skylar actually stated several times by phone to the Council how his family home in Montecito was threatened by the Ventura fire, and later was quoted in a newspaper how another of his homes, in Hawaii, was threatened by incoming missiles.

There was no mention of his mail drop in Malibu that allows him to occasionally serve on Council to dubious effect. ” – Sam Hall Kaplan, January 27, 2018, reporting for KBUU

Peak, a world class traveler,  enjoys three residences, Malibu, Montecito and Kauai, often flying in for a few days to attend City Council meetings, only to fly right back out to any number of destinations (many, and most surf related). On occasion, he might even do us a solid and Skype if his travel plans won’t allow him to grace us with his presence.

Clearly, his compliance hasn’t been questioned … yet?

But maybe the D.A. is in the midst of planning summertime cross-county-cross-continental raids to Peak’s many tropical locales?

Can California taxpayers really afford that?

Ladies and gentleman, pack your swimsuits (in Peak’s sake, speedos) we’re taking you on a magic carpet ride, “Around the World with Skylar Peak”.

*EDITOR’S NOTE: Due to time constraints, we could only include a portion of Peak’s travels. But you get the picture…

Cece Woods

The Current Report Editor in Chief Cece Woods started The Local Malibu, an activism based platform in 2014. The publication was instrumental in the success of pro-preservation ballot measures and seating five top vote-getters in the Malibu City Council elections.

During the summer of 2018, Woods exposed the two-year law enforcement cover-up in the Malibu Creek State Park Shootings, and a few short months later provided the most comprehensive local news coverage during the Woolsey Fire attracting over one million hits across her social media platforms.

Since 2020, Woods was the only journalist reporting on the on-going public corruption involving former L.A. Metro CEO Phil Washington. Woods worked with Political Corruption expert Adam Loew, DC Watchdog organizations and leaders in the Capitol exposing Washington which ultimately led to the withdrawal of his nomination to head the FAA.

Woods also founded Malibu based 90265 Magazine and Cali Mag devoted to the authentic southern California lifestyle.
