Redondo Beach District 1 Council Member Nils Nehrenheim was sworn into office on June 6, 2017 for his first term, and re-elected in March for a second term through March of 2025. Nehrenheim’s public activism within community groups he both founded and participated in, focusing on land-use, resonates resoundingly with the voting Redondo Beach majority. As an activist, Nehrenheim co-wrote a citizen’s initiative for zoning in King Harbor, Redondo Beach, that qualified as a ballot measure and won by an overwhelming margin in March 2017. That measure was certified by the California Coastal Commission, without any changes, a first in California history! True to his word, Nehrenheim continues to bring change and much-needed reform as an elected official. He has staunchly advocated for increased transparency within City government across all disciplines, including but not limited to financial, managerial and process improvement. And most notably, he has successfully defended a personal lawsuit inflicted by developer-funded, court labeled “shills,” setting California election law precedence. That he runs an Internet-host company and is a County Lifeguard adds to his well-rounded expertise and effectiveness in serving his City and constituents.
