Arlington Mayor Cluck to seek re-election

Robert Cluck has announced plans to seek a seventh term as Arlington mayor.

Before winning his first mayoral election in May 2003, the obstetrician and vice president for medical affairs at Texas Health Resources Memorial Hospital served two terms as District 4 councilman.

During his time as mayor, the Dallas Cowboys built its new stadium in town while topless nightclubs virtually disappeared from the city. Cluck’s stance regarding such establishments ultimately led a topless club owner to hire a hit man to assassinate the mayor in 2012. The individual was subsequently sentenced to 10 years in federal prison.

“I am so proud of what Arlington has accomplished,” said Cluck, 75, in a news release. “We have more to do and that is why I am going to ask the voters for another two years.”

Expected to challenge Cluck in the election is Jeff Williams, 55, a civil engineering executive. Meanwhile, City Councilman Robert Rivera last month said he will not challenge Cluck in the election.
