Will Mayor Meeker try for a fifth term? His answer is ...

Posted by on Mon, Jan 26, 2009 at 2:30 PM

We asked Mayor Charles Meeker, after his "State of the City" address today, whether he plans to seek a fifth term in the October elections. We've been hearing from people close to him that he doesn't want to run again but hasn't closed the door on it, at least with them.

Meeker's answer to us: "It's getting close to the time for me to leave." To which he added that he hasn't made a final decision yet -- and shrugged. Right now, that's his answer, he said.

The list of potential candidates should Meeker not run includes most of the current City Council members, though the likeliest ones all demur and/or express serious reservations about taking on a second full-time job -- which pays all of $15,000 a year, by the way. From within the putative "Meeker Majority," however, first-term Councilor Nancy McFarlane is the name most bruited about.
