Councilman Announces Re-election Bid

Councilman Scott Perkins has officially declared his intention to run for a third term.

. And former Planning Commissioner Phil O'Loane will run for one of the two council seats.

In a prepared statement, Perkins said that he is running for re-election because he wants to help build on the city's financial strength.

"That strength allows San Ramon to provide a network of services for our residents that result in an outstanding quality of life," said Perkins, who works for Lawrence Livermore National Labs as a flight test engineer.

Perkins believes that his previous job as a financial manager for the labs gives him the economic background to help maintain San Ramon's AAA credit rating.

Perkins is also a member of Save Mount Diablo, and says he is a proponent of keeping Tassajara Valley and San Ramon's surrounding open space development free.

He has also been a Boy Scout leader for 26 years, taking scouts on backpack trips around San Ramon's wilderness areas.

Perkins will host a campaign kick-off event at 5:30 p.m. on Aug. 11 at of.
