It’s Carlsbadistan Election Season Again

by The Editors on August 16, 2010

Following the close of the Carlsbadistan candidate filing period on Wednesday August 11, 2010 it appears that we have four mayoral candidates, four City Council candidates and a couple people who want to be treasurer come November, according to a story in the North County Times.

As expected, two councilmen —- Keith Blackburn and Matt Hall —- as well as former Marine Glenn Bernard and landscape company owner Walt Meier will be seeking the mayor’s spot. The city’s current, longtime mayor, Bud Lewis, decided at the start of his term four years ago not to seek re-election. Hall’s council seat is up for re-election this year, but he is not seeking that post. . . . Four people are seeking the two City Council seats on the ballot. They are city Planning Commissioner Farrah Douglas, incumbent Councilman Mark Packard, frequent council candidate William Jubb and Carlsbad education company employee Jon Wantz.

Oh, this election season his is going to be fun. We can hardly wait for the candidates forums. . .
