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.
