The first candidates to walk to the starting gates of the June 2012 City Council election are incumbent Council members Stephen Souza and Dan Wolk.

According to Davis City Clerk Zoe Mirabile, Souza, 56, an eight-year member of the City Council, filed his candidate statement and his list of 20 nominators Thursday to officially vie for one of three seats that will become available in June.

“I’m very grateful to all of the Davisites who nominated me so I may seek to serve this community for another four years and complete many of the tasks I have not completed,” Souza said Tuesday.

“There are many issues in this community I feel like I can contribute toward solving and work with my colleagues in solving.”

Souza, who owns and operates Ultra Clean Pool Service in Davis, announced in November that he would run for his third term. Follow his campaign at http://stephensouza.com.

The city cannot make the statement and the list of signatures public, however, until the candidacy filing period ends on March 9. The filing period began on Feb. 13.

Wolk, 34, who was appointed to the City Council last February after Don Saylor vacated his seat to take one on the Yolo County Board of Supervisors, filed his statement and nomination petition on Tuesday afternoon.

“Ever since I announced in October, I have been humbled by the outpouring of support I’ve received from all parts of our community,” said Wolk in a news release.

“We are dealing with tough issues right now, issues that will define our future, and we must face them squarely, not leave them to our children. I am proud of what I have accomplished so far, but there is so much left to do.”

Wolk grew up in Davis and works as deputy county counsel for Solano County. Follow his campaign at www.danwolk.org.

The other three candidates who have officially announced their campaigns — incumbent Sue Greenwald, 64, and newcomers Brett Lee, 46, and Lucas Frerichs, 32 — have not yet filed their candidate statements and nomination forms.

Greenwald has served on the council for 12 years and was the mayor from 2006 to 2008. Lee is an industrial engineer and is making his first bid for the council. Frerichs chairs the Planning Commission, and has served on the commission since 2008.

Campaign finance statements filed in January showed that Wolk had amassed a large early monetary advantage, raising more than $13,300 as of the end of December. That amount was more than doubled any other candidate’s total.

Souza reported raising about $4,300 and Lee, about $4,200. Greenwald and Frerichs did not file campaign statements because they hadn’t yet begun fundraising.
