David Haubert launches bid for election as Dublin mayor

Seeks to succeed Mayor Tim Sbranti, who is termed out this year

Dublin City Councilman and longtime school board member David Haubert has launched his campaign for election as Dublin mayor.

So far, he is the only candidate seeking the office to succeed Mayor Tim Sbranti, who is termed out this year and who also is seeking election as assemblyman in the 16th State Assembly District.

"For over a decade, I have been honored to serve our community as an elected leader," said Haubert. "I am proud of the work that we have been able to accomplish to this point, but the job is not done."

"As mayor," Haubert continued, "I will continue to provide both the efficient and effective leadership that our residents deserve, while encouraging economic development and promoting local opportunity."

In his business, Haubert advises international companies on business and marketing decisions.

Haubert's campaign has already received the support of Sean Kenney, the president of the Dublin Unified School District's board, and Janine Thalblum, president of the Dublin Rotary Club, where Haubert is a member.

"David's continual commitment to community through his public service has shown true dedication to making our city a fantastic place to live, work and raise a family," Thalblum said.

Kenney agreed.

"I'm proud to endorse David Haubert for Dublin mayor," Kenney said. "I know he will do what is best for Dublin to advance our community."

Haubert is a member of the Alameda County Local Area Formation Commission (LAFCO), Anka Behavioral Health Inc. board of directors, Dublin United Soccer League board of directors, Hope Hospice advisory board, and Easter Seals Bay Area finance committee. He volunteers with the Red Window Project, a non-profit committed to combating human trafficking.

Haubert and his wife Michelle have been married for 22 years. They have three daughters, Katelyn, Karissa and Courtney.
