He is the first candidate to announce plans to seek the seat. Candidates officially submit intentions between July 16 and August 10.
Voters in November will also have the opportunity to increase the mayor position from a two-year-term to a four-year-term, which would begin in 2014. Picanco told the Tribune he does not plan to run in the 2014 race.
Members of the council have been under fire for following directions sent in an email from city Manager Jim App and Attorney Iris Yang that instruct the council members and mayor not to listen to or read information about the city’s police department because of their alleged roles as judge of the employees in the department.
