Jeff Chasan

I am a commercial real estate broker who has lived in La Jolla for 29 years. I have been involved in community issues including keeping the beaches clean and safe for the public. I have assisted many companies in relocating and staying in La Jolla and San Diego. I look forward to further assisting in the improvement of the quality of life for people who visit and live in La Jolla as a trustee on the La Jolla Town Council. A few issues I am particularly interested in are the Van-lifers, Scooter/Bicycle placement and additional trash receptacles. 


Tara Hammond

I am the Director of Community Development for a local solar company and have lived in La Jolla for 8 years. I have been fortunate to travel to dozens of countries and I believe La Jolla has it all - beautiful scenery, walkability, great weather, outdoor activities, good community vibes, delicious vegan-friendly restaurants, fun entertainment and is dog friendly. Climate change will impact La Jolla and I will fight to protect our jewel. Other issues I'm interested in are transportation, energy and safety. My husband and I plan on raising our children here and I want to make a positive impact on our community, improving it for our residents, visitors and future La Jollans. 

Jerri Hunt

I am a retired Corporate Vice President and have lived in La Jolla for 3 years. I have served on several boards and I am dedicated to serve in my community. I would like to support the community by being a trustee and working on important issues such as public safety, short term rentals, and keeping the quality of life in La Jolla for the residents and visitors.
