Election season has begun

If you’re considering running for Davis City Council, there’s still plenty of time.

The official candidacy filing period opened Monday and continues through Friday, March 7. But due to an old rule enshrined in election code, if an incumbent doesn’t file for re-election, the deadline is extended five days.

That scenario is likely this election season because Mayor Joe Krovoza is running for a seat in the California Assembly instead of seeking re-election to the council.

His seat, and that of City Councilwoman Rochelle Swanson, are targets for three City Council wannabes — Daniel Parrella, a solar power entrepreneur; Sheila Allen, a member of the Davis Board of Education; and Robb Davis, a public health professional. Swanson is running for re-election. She is an account manager for a national communications infrastructure company.

All have taken out candidacy papers, according to Zoe Mirabile, city clerk.

Mirabile said the deadline for incumbents to file those papers is Friday, March 7. If Krovoza doesn’t seek re-election, as expected, the deadline for non-incumbents would be Wednesday, March 12.

Mirabile has advice for anyone who wishes to run for City Council: Schedule a 30-minute appointment with her to go over all the necessary rules, paperwork and the money it will cost to do various election-related things, like have a campaign statement in the voter’s guide.

“If you’re spending money, there’s a whole other set of documents,” she said, adding the state Fair Political Practices Commission had a manual of state rules, which then have to be compared to city rules when electioneering in Davis.

Mirabile said everyone who has said they are running for City Council so far has had an appointment with her to go over the rules.
