Jeff Forrest seeks Ward 2 Carlsbad City Council seat

Bob Forrest served 16-years as Carlsbad’s Mayor. Now, his grandson Jeff Forrest is running for Carlsbad City Council.

Forrest is running against Ward 2 incumbent Leo Estrada in the Nov. 2 City Council elections.

“We need to clean up our town and protect homeowners,” he said of his candidacy. “When you drive through the main streets of our town, you see buildings that are spray painted, businesses with no sign or with little to no working lights, and weeds growing out of control.”

Forrest said the City needs to make sure businesses are painted in approved colors with well-maintained landscaping and proper signage that are in good, working condition.

He said Carlsbad homeowners need protection, from among other things, overgrown weeds and vehicles improperly parked on front lawns.
