Former council member joins race

Former Petaluma City Council member, Janice Cader-Thompson, is the final candidate to join the Nov. 4 city council race. Cader-Thompson filed her papers Wednesday, which was the deadline for non-incumbent candidates to file.

Cader-Thompson served on the Petaluma City Council from 1998 to 2002, and has been known for her progressive viewpoints. She was outspoken against the traffic impacts of the Friedman’s shopping center, as well as the Rainier cross-town connector project.

In a statement released Thursday, Cader-Thompson said she helped secure grant funding for the Ellis Creek Water Recycling Facility and walking trails, and worked on regional issues ranging from transportation and public safety to open space.

Cader-Thompson will run against moderate newcomers Ken Quinto and Dave King, and incumbents Chris Albertson and Teresa Barrett for the three available council seats. Current councilmember Mike Harris is challenging Mayor David Glass for the mayor’s seat this fall.
