Malibu Is ANEW!

 

As we welcome in a new year, we look back to a historical local election and look forward to the rst of cial City Council meeting with a pro-preservation majority.

The swearing-in of the new council members was historical, much like our local elec- tion. The community showed up to City Hall, just like they did to their local polling stations, to witness Chumash Ceremonial Elder Mati Waiya and his wife
Luhui Isha swear in top vote-getter Rick Mullen. Mullen interviews Waiya for our cover story and talks about the signi cance of why he chose “Malibu’s First People” to help usher in this new era for Malibu.

Mullen, who takes to the dais on Jan. 11th as one of three new council members along with Skylar Peak and Jefferson Wagner, also addresses the political sea change in Malibu’s Council election with Malibu Community Action Network’s Cyn- thia Kesselman.

There are many other signi cant stories impacting Malibu at the start of the new year, some of which we share in this issue, and many more we anticipate to share with you in the future.

Welcome 2017, Malibu is ANEW!
