IMG_0947 (4)Martinez City Council candidate John Stevens surprised parade goers Monday with fortune cookies. The fortunes? “JOHN STEVENS will be your next Martinez City Council Member.” Clever!

Main Street Martinez rules forbade candidates from riding in the parade with election banners, but it looks like Stevens found a great way to make a memorable impression on Independence Day.

Stevens, Noralee Gipner and incumbent Mark Ross are the only candidates, thus far, to either declare or express interest in candidacy for the post. Two seats are up for grabs as Ross’s present term expires this November, and Councilwoman Anamarie Avila Farias continues her bid for a seat on the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors.
