VACAVILLE — With Vacaville Mayor Steve Hardy deciding against a bid for a second term, citing his health, others are beginning to rumble with the awakening sounds of . . . indecision or demur comments about replacing him.
“I will be announcing (but) I haven’t made a formal announcement at this time,” said Councilman Ron Rowlett, whose council seat isn’t up until 2016.
Councilman Curtis Hunt has a bit more of a decision to make – one he said he’s working on now. Hunt’s council seat is up this year. Does he run for re-election or toss his hat in the ring for mayor?
“I haven’t made any decisions yet,” he said. “I’m pretty sure I’m going to run for either one. I just need to sit down with my wife. I’ll consider all options. I’m just not going to limit myself right now.”
Councilwoman Dilenna Harris remained non-committal about a possible run for the mayor’s chair. Like Rowlett, her council term isn’t up until 2016.
The filing period is July 14 through Aug. 8.
Attempts to discover plans for Councilman Mitch Mashburn were unsuccessful. His term is up this year.
