Florence Mayor Phil Brubaker announced Monday he will run for a fourth consecutive two-year term as mayor this November.
Brubaker, 64, moved to the area in 1993 and is a retired financial planner. A member of the Florence City Council since 2001, he was elected mayor in 2004, beating former mayor Wilbur Ternyik. He ran unopposed in 2006, then weathered a recall attempt in January 2008. Nine months after the failed recall, Brubaker earned a third term as mayor, running unopposed again.
He won’t have such luck this go-around. Former Florence mayor and current city council Vice-President Alan Burns announced last month his intention to seek his seventh term as mayor.For the complete article see the 05-26-2010 issue.
