And then there were three. Kasie Hildenbrand announced yesterday that she would be running for Dublin Mayor in the upcoming 2014 election. Hildenbrand, who sat on the city council for eight years, joins current councilmembers David Haubert and Kevin Hart in the race to fill Mayor Tim Sbranti's spot.

"I am excited and encouraged by all of the early support for my campaign to be the next Mayor of Dublin," Hildenbrand said. "My leadership, experience and commitment to Dublin serves as my motivation to run for Mayor and I look forward to embarking on a very strong campaign. My entering this race gives the voters of Dublin a diverse choice for Mayor."

Hildenbrand was Vice Mayor of Dublin for four years while serving on the city council. Before serving on the council, Hildenbrand says she spent two years on the Parks and Recreation Commission and the Citizens Oversight Committee for Measure B transportation fees and was appointed to Dublin Fine Arts Task Force and the Affordable Housing Task Force. Hildenbrand has been an active board member of the Dublin Sister City Association for 10 years and has been a fundraiser for Dougherty Elementary and Dublin Partners in Education.

Hildenbrand started a community group called "Friends of Dublin" after successfully protecting Emerald Glen Park from development and collaborated with Books Not Bars, the Sierra Club, community organizations and local residents to keep the juvenile detention facility more centrally located in the county.
