Says he’s not running

Randy Hatch has decided not to run against Vice Mayor Kathy Miller for a seat on the Stockton City Council.

He gave it lots of thought and prayer, he said. This week, he announced to supporters that this was not his time to mount a campaign.

Hatch said he was recently made a bishop of his LDS ward, the Mormon equivalent to being a church minister. He is responsible for running their meetings, counseling his members struggling with issue and overseeing an assistance program for people out of work and struggling financially.

While studying and thinking about running, Hatch said he felt uneasy and confused.

“Now my mood is sunny and bright,” he said. “I take that as an answer to the prayers. This is not your time.”

He will remain on the city’s Planning Commission and supports Mayor Ann Johnston in her bid for a second terms so she may reappoint him.
