The City of Pismo Beach says it's working with the San Luis Obispo County Clerk-Recorder's Office to correct an error in the Voter Information Guide that was recently sent to voters.

In the race for Pismo Beach City Council, Kevin Kreowski's candidate statement was left out of the guide and Stacy Inman's candidate statement was included twice.

Kreowski and Inman are running against Mary Ann Reiss, Erik Howell, and Debora Ann Lossing for two available seats on the city council.

Election Day is November 8.

Ballots started arriving in voters' mailboxes this week, and ballot drop-off boxes are now open.

Registered voters in Pismo Beach will be receiving a letter explaining the mistake, along with a copy of Kreowski's candidate statement

The candidate statements for all of the Pismo Beach City Council candidates are also available on the city's website.

Late Wednesday night, San Luis Obispo County Clerk-Record Elaina Cano said her office was aware of the “inadvertent omission” of Kreowski’s candidate statement from the voter information guide.

Cano says the online versions of Ballot Type 64 and 65 have been corrected and replaced.

“We deeply regret that this has happened and will be refunding Mr. Krewoski’s cost that he provided to have his statement printed,” Cano said.
