Olmos Park residents can cast their ballots for mayor and City Council Place 5 starting this week. Whomever they select for mayor will be a familiar face at City Hall, while the council member will be a newcomer on the dais.
Kenneth Farrimond, 79, is seeking the mayor’s post, which he held from May 2012 until May 2016. Since then, it’s been held by outgoing Mayor Ronald Hornberger, who decided not to run again this year. Place 5 Councilwoman Deanna Rickabaugh, 58, is seeking the position, too.
Robert M. Adelman, a project manager at Motorola Solutions, and criminal defense attorney Will Brooks are vying for the Place 5 seat.
Kenyon McDonald is running unopposed for the Place 4 seat, which he has held since 2014.
The mayor and council member terms are two years long. There are no term limits.
Olmos Park residents also will weigh in on whether to reauthorize the local sales and use tax rate of one-fourth of 1 percent. The rate, which goes before voters every four years, has been the same in Olmos Park since 2002.
