Redondo Beach Planning Commissioner
Local Soccer and Baseball Coach
“I'm committed to giving North Redondo the attention it deserves.”
— Scott Behrendt
I ❤️ Redondo!
My wife, Evelyn Acosta Behrendt, and I are Southern California natives and 20 year residents, homeowners, and parents of two school aged children in Redondo Beach.
After enjoying and benefiting from living in this beautiful and unique city, we're excited for this run to fill the District 5 Council seat to serve and give back to this community all the great things it has to offer.
Scott Is a “Super Lawyer”!
I am also an attorney by trade, and have been named a “Super Lawyer” from 2012 - 2022 by Los Angeles Magazine – a distinction recognizing the top 5% of attorneys for excellence in the practice of law. Over my 25 year career, I've developed the ability to process large amounts of complex information, and work productively, efficiently, respectfully, and fairly with people of different backgrounds and points of view in solving difficult issues. I have the attention to detail, listening skills, and ability to represent -- and make important and difficult decisions on behalf of -- the people of Redondo Beach.
AYSO & RBLL Youth Sports Coach
For many years, I have been a youth sports volunteer coach and mentor with Region 17 AYSO, and the Redondo Beach Little League, and active in our children's school life, where I've developed great and lasting relationships and friends throughout District 5 for whom I'd like to be a voice on the City Council.
University Honors Student
I graduated Top 15 in my class at the University of California, Santa Barbara, with a B.A. in Business Economics, and #3 in the day student class at Loyola Law School. I founded the Criminal Law Society, clerked for the Hon. Harvey A. Schneider (Ret.) of the Los Angeles Superior Court, and, as a certified law student, prosecuted numerous criminal jury and bench trials, and more than 500 felony preliminary hearings and related criminal proceedings, under the supervision of the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office, Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office, and the Orange County District Attorney's Office.
Addressing Homelessness & Serving on the RB Planning Commission
I first became active in Redondo Beach local government in leading the effort to relocate a proposed homeless pallet shelter from Aviation Park in District 5 to a more appropriate location. It was then that I had the pleasure of meeting and working collaboratively with our Mayor, City Council, and City Attorney to provide input on a common sense and compassionate solution to a homelessness issue. Afterwards, I was honored to be appointed by the Mayor and City Council to serve as a commissioner on the Redondo Beach Planning Commission, where I currently preside and provide advice in all matters related to the planning, zoning, and the physical development of our great city.
I'm running for City Council to keep our neighborhood safe, clean, and a great place to live for families, seniors, and all residents.
