Council and Mayoral Candidates
PDB’s August 11 General Membership meeting was a discussion with candidates running for Benicia Mayor and City Council. We decided we no longer needed a second endorsement meeting (previously scheduled for Aug. 20) and so combined the meetings into one on Aug. 11.
All Democratic candidates running for Benicia Mayor and City Council were invited. Incumbent Councilmember Tom Campbell declined our invitation to attend without explanation. Vice-Mayor Christina Strawbridge, who is running for Mayor, also declined to attend citing “previous experiences with the group.”
As a result, we had plenty of time to hear from the Democratic candidates running for Benicia Council and Mayor who graciously accepted our invitation to discuss their campaigns and vision for Benicia with members of the Benicia community:
- Candidate for Mayor: Councilmember Steve Young
- Candidates for Council: Trevor Macenski and Terry Scott
