Petaluma City Council candidate field expands

The field is becoming more crowded for candidates seeking the three Petaluma City Council seats up for election in November.

Business owner and former software executive Jason Davies, who finished fourth in a race for three seats in 2010, entered the race this week.

He joins Vice Mayor Tiffany Renee and Councilman Gabe Kearney, who seek reelection, and Alicia Kae Herries, a Planning Commissioner who announced her intent to run this spring.

Councilman Mike Healy, whose term also is ending, said Wednesday he "is still thinking about" whether to run for reelection.

The names of two prominent local politicians also have been circulating as possible candidates: Pam Torliatt, a longtime former member of the council, and Mike Kerns, who represented Petaluma for three terms on the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors.
