Schaaf for Mayor?

Nothing yet from the mare’s mouth, but I had a couple well-connected people tell me Friday afternoon that Libby Schaaf is starting preparations for a mayoral run.

It’s hard to gauge political ramifications with ranked-choice voting, but a run by Schaaf could swing some money and volunteer energy away from Joe Tuman. 

Running would be a big gamble for Schaaf. She’s up for re-election to the council next year, so she’d have to give up her seat to run for mayor.
