Today Dublin City Councilman David Haubert announced in a letter to friends and constituents his intention to run for Dublin Mayor in 2014.

Haubert was elected to the Dublin City Council in November 2012 after serving 10 consecutive years on the Dublin School Board of Trustees. He is the longest continuously serving elected official in Dublin dating back to November 2002 when 
he was elected to the School Board. Dublin’s current Mayor, Tim Sbranti, is termed out in 2014.
“I’m excited for the opportunity to continue to serve the residents of Dublin as Mayor,” said Haubert. “I promise to work hard to accelerate Dublin’s economic development and strengthen our tax base, to enhance community services for all Dublin residents and to maintain our safe quality of life.

“During my first term as Dublin City Councilmember I’ve worked diligently to strengthen ties within our community. I want to hear even more from residents, so over the next several months, I’ll be holding a series of 25 neighborhood meetings, hosted by Dublin residents from every  neighborhood. I want to hear firsthand what people feel is working really well and what can be even better. I have also strived to build ties with neighboring communities. I’m proud that my campaign is endorsed by the Mayors of Danville, Pleasanton and San Ramon."

I am really looking forward to working with David as the Mayor of Dublin. He will be a great addition to our Tri-Valley Mayors and our efforts to make sure the Tri-Valley receives the attention it deserves at the State and Federal level.

I believe David is the right choice for Mayor of Dublin at this time. His actions speak for him when he says he wants to be in touch with the residents of Dublin. He will be a People's Mayor! I recommend you consider David for your Mayor.

I have known David since both his and my kids started school in Dublin. Sometimes the word "politician" has a bad connotation these days. But David brings respectability and honor to the title. I have and will continue to support David in his endeavors to help Dublin. Dublin could not do better. Blaine Mathieu CEO, Selectica Inc.

Congratulations on your announcement, David! I'm so excited for you. I have such love and respect for you and your beautiful family. I've known you through years on School Board and City Council, and although I am no longer a Dublin resident, I still feel like that community is my home. Dublin is a very special, close knit community of amazing people, and I know your leadership will be highly regarded and valued among the residents. You have shown on City Council that you care what the community thinks, and you always listen and respond with the people's best interest in mind - always with a mix of analytical wisdom and genuine care. Dublin has a bright future with you as mayor.
