April 13, 2018
The City Clerk confirms that former City Councilmember Bob Holbrook is undergoing chemo therapy.
The City Council's office would not state anything else definitive about Holbrook's health, except that he has been undergoing treatment for about a year.
Holbrook served on the Council on and off over a 35 year period, ending in 2014. In February, the Council allocated $20,000 to establish a scholarship fund "for a Santa Monica student interested in pursuing an education in civic engagement or public service," to be called the Bob Holbrook scholarship.
