Moreno didn’t know that if he won he’d be running for re-election two years later, in the 2018 off-year election.

The speculation that District 3 Councilman Jose F. Moreno might run for mayor next year won’t go away – in part because Moreno himself feeds it. Mayor Tom Tait is termed out in 2018, and Moreno is also up for re-election to a full term. He drew the figurative short straw to determine which of the four councilmembers elected in ...
