Brentwood mayor will seek re-election

Brentwood Mayor Bob Taylor, in his trademark “third person” voice, sent me an email this morning letting me know that he plans to run for re-election in November.

“Rumor has it, the mayor of Brentwood is seeking re-election for a second term … having checked with the source, it is totally true,” Taylor wrote. “A side comment, if Mayor Robert ‘Bob’ Taylor is elected, he will be Brentwood’s last two-year term mayor and will be the first four year term mayor due to a ballet initiative making the term a four-year obligation.”

The filing period opens today for nonpartisan seats on dozens of East Bay boards, including most of its city councils, school boards, special districts, BART and the East Bay Regional Park District.
