VACAVILLE — City Councilman Curtis Hunt decided this week to run as an incumbent for his council seat instead of the mayor’s seat.

He pulled his nomination papers and is collecting the requisite signatures in the week to come.

“I gave careful consideration to the mayor’s position,” he said. “I decided that I can best serve the community as an active member of the City Council, advocating for effective public policy.”

He said that he realized he was more focused on the work of the council – citing that he enjoyed reading the agenda packets presented to council members before meetings and “introducing alternative ideas for council consideration, supporting the entire community.”

Hunt’s kickoff event will begin at 10 a.m. Aug. 6 outside the City Council chamber.

Councilman Mitch Mashburn and Cara Fox have also pulled paperwork for a council run.

    Let's see Curtis is running for council again. He gets a full PERS retirement from Fairfield and also full medical from the city of Vacaville for life. Sounds like a great deal for the former city worker. But our city workers are still getting a 8.8% cut in pay due to his efforts towards improving the general fund. This is being done without addressing any of our "quality of life" programs: Fire Paramedic program (over $3.0 million per year), Graham pool ( over $500k each year), VPAT (over $$ each and every year) etc, etc. We in Vacaville balance our budget on the backs of the city employees. Great job, easiest way out!

    Councilman Hunt "earned" his PERS retirement...the exact same retirement that "you" are earning as a city employee. He's also entitled to take whatever benefits are offered by the City of Vacaville to elected officials. If you have a beef about what benefits are provided to elected officials in Vacaville, do something about it. Until then, Mr. Hunt and the other three City Councilmembers, and the Mayor are entitled to these benefits. I think it's funny that you are complaining about Mr. Hunt's retirement benefits when he earned his the same way you are earning yours. Good grief. Get over it already.

    Mr. Hunt has done what is best for Vacaville he was right to stand up against the pressure put on by unions. Vacaville should be very grateful for a city councilman who has the guts to stand with the taxpayers .

    Curtis Hunt would make a great mayor, I'd like to see him run some day. That being said, it is critical that he be returned to City Council. Regardless of whether Curtis agrees with you on an issue you can be sure that he has put careful study and conscience into his position. What's more, he will listen to your position thoughtfully and with respect. Curtis recognizes the need to preserve the financial health of the city while maintaining a comprehensive approach to city services. He identifies with those who work for the city and is appreciative of their contribution. He also recognizes that, after all is said and done, that it serves ALL citizens to keep the city on a sound fiscal footing. You can be assured that Curtis Hunt will consider what he knows to be in the best interest of the City of Vacaville, rather than catering to the most vocal influences. Regardless of whether you agree with him, you should recognize his hard work, his independence, and his integrity.
