Tom Hughes Enters Metro Prez Race


Former Hillsboro Mayor Tom Hughes told WW today that he is entering the Metro Council President's race.

Hughes, a 66-year-old retired school teacher, served two terms as Hillsboro mayor. He finished his service in January 2009 and is currently employed as a lobbyist at the Tonkon Torp law firm.

"I won't do an official announcement until the new year, but I'm in the race," says Hughes, who is a Democrat. (The race to replace current Metro council President David Bragdon, who is term-limited, is non-partisan).

Hughes joins a field that already includes two strong candidates: Metro Councillor Rex Burkholder and former 1000 Friends of Oregon executive director Bob Stacey.
