On Tuesday, former candidate James Reagan announced his withdrawal from the District 2 Berkeley City Council elections race.
Reagan’s withdrawal leaves three candidates — Nanci Armstrong-Temple, Cheryl Davila and incumbent Darryl Moore — currently running for the District 2 seat. Moore, who was first elected in 2004, filed his intent to rerun for the seat in February.
In a statement, Reagan endorsed Davila’s candidacy and expressed his gratitude for city residents’ support.
“I’ve met many great residents in our district over the past year,” Reagan said. “People who envision a better Berkeley, a city that will hear their voices and truly work for them. I personally thank each and every one for their support and only ask that a vote for Cheryl is the right choice in November.”
Reagan served as a human welfare commissioner between 2010 and 2014. He was the Government and Community Relations Advisory Board member of People’s Park from 2007 to 2010.
District 2 represents the southwestern region of the city, from the Berkeley Marina in the west to Sacramento Street in the east. It is bordered by the cities of Oakland and Emeryville.
