With Friday’s filing date quickly approaching, the City of Brentwood races just got interesting as a potential third candidate emerged for Mayor after Jordan James pulled papers for both the mayor and council seat.
According to Margaret Wimberly, Brentwood City Clerk, while Mr. James pulled papers for both Mayor and Council Member, pursuant to California State Election Code section 10220.5 he may only file nomination papers for one municipal office.
- Steve Barr
- Jordan James
- Bob Taylor (I)
Council Race (2 seats)
There was a rumor going around that Robert Brockman was interested in potentially running for mayor, but that was shot down as he ultimately pulled for council. Looking at the candidates list, what jumps out at me is there Carissa Pillow is the only woman in the field which may give her a slight advantage at this point in time–it also doesn’t hurt she is a nurse. Mayor Bob Taylor’s website looks to be from his 2008 campaign.
At this point in time, only Gene Clare and Carissa Pillow have campaign websites up while Dirk Zeigler has a facebook page.
Candidates have until Friday to turn in their paperwork to become official candidates.
