Time for an update on who has pulled papers to run for mayor or city council.

On Friday (I think), Lorri Galloway pulled her nomination papers. The former councilwoman formed a committee and filed her intention to run last November, and has “Galloway for Mayor” yard signs popping up around Anaheim, so no surprise here.

That leaves Mayor Tom Tait as the only announced candidate who has not yet pulled nomination papers.

On the council side, it is still status quo. Incumbents Kris Murray and Gail Eastman have pulled papers, as have retired Anaheim policeman Jerry O’Keefe and attorney Doug Pettibone (a neighbor of the mayor’s and member of his council candidate slate). The other half of the Tait Slate, James Vanderbilt, has not yet pulled papers.

UPDATED (1:02 p.m. on July 22): Mayor Tom Tait has pulled his nomination papers.
