FAIRFIELD — Perry Polk, a Fairfield-Suisun School District trustee, said Thursday he is running for the Fairfield City Council and won’t seek re-election to the school board.

Polk and school board president David Isom live in the same trustee area and under the school district’s new election by trustee area would have sought the same seat if both men ran Nov. 4 for school board.

“Neither one of us wanted to run against each other,” Polk said. “We’re very close friends.”

Isom has taken out papers to for Trustee Area 7, which includes Clay Bank Road and part of Air Base Parkway, in the school district.

Polk, 73, served on the Fairfield City Council from 1991-95.

“I very much believe in public service,” he said.

He was appointed to the school board in 2010, and elected without opposition to a two-year term in 2011. The change in Fairfield-Suisun School District elections extended his term for another year.

Crime is the biggest issue facing Fairfield, Polk said.

State realignment in 2011, releasing some inmates from state prisons, has meant the city has received “more than our fair share” of troubles, he said.

Polk is a part-time interim rector at Grace Episcopal Church in Fairfield. He retired as a major in the U.S. Air Force, worked for 18 years as information technology director at the Mount Diablo School District in Concord and taught college courses in economics, finance and management.

Seats held by incumbent council members Catherine Moy and John Mraz are up for election Nov. 4, along with the mayor’s office represented by Harry Price. Moy and Price have said they will seek re-election while Mraz has said he’s assessing whether to seek another term.

Ben Afisivalu, Joe Martinez, Chuck Timm and Scott Tonnesen have announced their candidacies for City Council – and Randy Blakenchip, Scott Mulvey and Brian Thiemer have taken out filing papers this week for City Council.

Price will be seeking his third term as mayor. He was a city councilman for two terms before being elected mayor in 2005.

Moy was appointed to the council in 2008 and elected to a full term in 2009.

Filing for three seats on the Fairfield-Suisun School District board of trustees began Monday and ends Aug. 8.

No filing fee is required for the school board seats that pay $400 a month and provide the same benefits offered to school district management employees. Seats representing Trustee Areas 7, 5 and 4 are up for election Nov. 4.

Area 5 includes Sunset Avenue and East Kentucky Street. Texas Street and Travis Boulevard are part of Area 4.

Residents can go to www.solanocounty.com/depts/rov/ and type in their address to determine the trustee area where they reside or call the registrar’s office at 784-6675.

Candidates must be 18 years old, a resident of the trustee area they seek to represent, a registered voter and not employed by the Fairfield-Suisun district, according to the school district website.
