Lodi voters could see a wide open city council ballot in the 2014 election. Terms are ending for three council members: Mayor Alan Nakanishi, Councilman Phil Katzakian and Councilman Larry Hansen.
Hansen said Tuesday he will not run for re-election when his four-year term is up.
“It will be interesting to see the election in 2014, because there could be three seats open,” he said. “That ballot could have 10 people on it. More people come out when more seats are there.”
Mayor Alan Nakanishi is considering a campaign for a seat on the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors.
“I’m in the thinking phase. I have not made a decision,” he said. “I think I could do a good job, but I’m still looking at all factors.”
Supervisor Ken Vogel represents district four, the eastern and northern area of the county including Lodi. His term will end in 2014.
Nakanishi said he will make an announcement on his candidacy by July.
Katzakian has not yet announced whether he will run again in 2014.
