Three Malibu challengers, Craig Foster, Karen Farrer and Seth Jacobson, are hoping to unseat incumbents Ben Allen, Jose Escarce and Maria Leon-Vazquez.

Jacobson backed out of the debate because of a business trip, but the others met up Thursday in a debate sponsored by Malibu Rotary at Pepperdine University. Malibu Patch editor Jessica Davis moderated the debate, which used questions soley from Patch readers.
