Mayor Lucan Withdraws From Senate Race

Novato Mayor Eric Lucan announces that he is dropping out of the race for the State Senate

Novato Mayor Eric Lucan

Mayor Eric Lucan announced that he was stepping down from the race for Noreen Evan's California State Senate seat.

The Novato mayor cited time constraints as the reason why he was dropping out of pursuing Evan's seat. This now leaves Sonoma County Supervisor Mike McGuire as the sole Democrat in the race.

"I said at the outset that my service on the Novato City Council, and now as Mayor, would come first during the campaign – and I have kept that commitment," the mayor said in a statement.

"I have continued to work fulltime and commute daily. My career and position in business has given me an important perspective outside of politics, but the balancing act has become difficult. With increasing pressures on my time, I found it was possible to run a good campaign, but not the great campaign that this large district deserves and requires," Lucan said.

I keep getting thrown off by the wheels.

Hook, line, and sinker, Eileen. You swallowed the "trailer park" bait again. Good to know you're still alive and feisty.

I am sorry to see that Mr. Lucan dropped out. He would make the ideal California career politician. BTW, who else is running for the Senate seat, or has the California "Open" Primary prevented anyone else from running?

Craig and Sixpack, not h,l & sinker, we cut the tongues out of people who refer to Los Robles as a trailer park...I still have my wheels btw, they help in an earthquake. Some people sold theirs. But to the issue at hand, I wonder which is worse, Mr Lucan as a state senator or as a council member since both jobs require some modicum of brains.

Eileen, I draw the best out of you when I do that. I went to the Paint the Budget Red party tonight, and met Eric. He's a cute kid, and I hope he has a brilliant career. Somewhere else. Actually, you should be in his shoes. You've got the chops for it. I'd love to see your red pencil come out whenever they try to pull the wool over our eyes. Pretty dull party otherwise. No fights, no twerking, just a lot of brown nosing. Beer was good, tho.
