SUISUN CITY — Suisun City voters will see some familiar names on November’s ballot, with Mayor Pete Sanchez and City Councilwoman Jane Day saying they will run to keep their seats.
City Councilman Mike Hudson, the third incumbent whose seat is up for election, was out of town on family business Tuesday and could not be reached for comment.
Sanchez, who will be running for his third term as mayor, said that he will pull, and file, his candidacy papers on the first day – July 14. Prior to succeeding now-Solano County Supervisor Jim Spering as mayor, Sanchez was a city councilman from 1994 through 2006.
“I hope it’s still a charm,” he said in reference to the expression about the third time being a charm.
Councilman Mike Segala, who ran against Sanchez for the mayor’s seat twice, declined to state whether he would make another attempt to unseat Sanchez this fall.
Day, who now attends city council meetings by phone due to a medical condition, said Tuesday that she will seek her eighth term on the council.
“There are things that still need to be pursued,” she said of her decision. “There’s enough to be accomplished that I want to finish.”
Like Sanchez, she plans on pulling, and filing, her candidacy papers on the first day. Day is the senior member of the council, having served for 28 years.
Mike Hudson, who was defeated by Jim Frazier for a seat on the state assembly two years ago, was elected to the city council in 2006 and re-elected in 2010.
