Scirocco and Wirth also plead the fifth on reelection plans

Both DPW Commissioner Anthony "Skip" Scirocco and Public Safety Commissioner Richard Wirth said today it was too early to talk about reelection campaign plans, echoing the same sentiment shared yesterday by Finance Commissioner Ken Ivins Jr.

Wirth did offer some justification, saying he would wait for official party endorsements before making an announcement.

For those of you who have been in town longer than I have; is this typical going into an election year that city officials won't give at least some indication whether or not they're going to run or not? I just figured everyone would say yes regardless of party endorsements. What's the worst that could happen?

routorIvins and Scirocco should give the city a break. I doubt anyone would primary Scirocco but Ivins will face a primary if he decides to run. Look at the narrow margin he won by in the last election and that was with Democrat and Indepence Party support which he WILL NOT HAVE THIS TIME AROUND!!!!!!!

This is very common. In fact, the only guy I can remember saying he'd run BEFORE the endorsements are released in spring is Gordon Boyd, who announced in January 2007.
