Thanks for mentioning my candidacy in your opening survey of the May 2008 elections for Austin City Council [“Point Austin
,” News, Oct. 12].
I was also interested in your coverage of the advance maneuvers for the 2009 mayoral election. You can’t plan too far ahead, so I thought it would be a good idea for me to go ahead and announce now my plans to run for mayor in 2018. That will be one year after the end of my third term as a council member. Between my third term as council member and my first term as mayor I intend to take a year off to write a book and travel around the world via holographic projection.
