City Clerk Kathy Bennett informed Mann, who is the first candidate to be declared official. Meanwhile, a fourth Menifee resident pulled papers today to run for mayor.
John Green, who has lived in Menifee since 2006 and in the Temecula Valley since 1987, has joined the field of prospective candidates. Green is a real estate broker who says is he running as a Constitutionalist -- one who advocates the adherence to an individual's Constitutional rights and limitations in government.
"I'm running a grass-roots campaign," Green said in a phone interview today. "I'm noticing how fast the city is growing and I have concern with the direction it will go. I'm for protecting the citizens' private property rights. I'm against traffic light cameras and some of those things that are discussed by cities today."
Green joins Mann, Paul Wiggins and George Rackstraw, all of whom pulled papers last week to run for mayor.
