Antioch Councilman and Contra Costa Sheriff’s Lt. Brian Kalinowski has put out an email invite telling folks he will host a short meeting Tuesday night, further fueling speculation that he will announce his plans to run for county sheriff.
The meeting will be held at the Deputy Sheriffs Association union hall in Martinez at 5 p.m.
If Kalinowski enters the race, he will run without his boss’ support.
Incumbent Sheriff Warren Rupf, who announced last week that he will not seek a fifth term, has already recruited and endorsed Concord Police Chief David Livingston.
This could prove to be a barn-burner of a race between two career lawmen from two of the county’s largest cities.
