Bestolarides won’t comment on Mayoral bid

It’s been a long time since I’ve blogged, mostly because there hasn’t been a need to clarify anything or because I’ve felt my articles don’t need extra explanation or my opinion.
However, there’s been speculation in the air regarding Supervisor Steve Bestolarides’ intention to run for mayor, which I’ve learned from our city hall reporter Roger Phillips that he’s been planning this for two years.
On Tuesday, Bestolarides was interviewed for the county assessor’s job, bringing forth more speculation that he has decided to forego his shot at Stockton mayor.
Bestolarides told me today that he never said he would not run for mayor during the interview process Tuesday, but would also not confirm whether or not he would.
He repeated what he said Tuesday: “if I am to be a valuable asset to this county over the long term, I will need to run for office in 2018, which I plan to do.”
We’ll need to wait a while longer before a definite bid for mayor is ever announced.
