Councilman, property manager vie to replace longtime San Bruno mayor


With longtime San Bruno Mayor Jim Ruane announcing in August that he would not seek re-election, a current city councilmember and a local property manager are running to replace him in Tuesday's election.


Councilman Rico Medina has broad support from other local politicians in his campaign to become mayor, with Ruane, Rep. Jackie Speier, state Sen. Jerry Hill, state Assembly Speaker pro Tempore Kevin Mullin, and multiple county and city officials endorsing him.


Medina has served on the City Council for 12 years, including during the deadly PG&E pipeline explosion on Sept. 9, 2010.


"We will never forget our past and the need of our neighbors, but at the same time we must also focus on moving forward in a positive direction," he wrote on his campaign website.


Zink was not immediately available to comment on the race and had not posted any campaign material on social media or a website.


Ruane, who has been on the City Council since 1995, said in August that he was stepping down to spend more time with his family.
