San Luis Obispo Mayor Jan Marx is hosting a campaign kickoff party, celebrating her bid for a third term as mayor.

The event will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday at the Steynberg Gallery, 1531 Monterey St. in San Luis Obispo.

Marx has served 10 years on the San Luis Obispo City Council, four of them as mayor. She has also represented the city for seven years on regional boards including the San Luis Obispo Council of Governments, the San Luis Obispo Regional Transportation Agency and the county Air Pollution Control District.

“I am proud of what I have been able to accomplish during my time in office, but there is still so much to be done to make sure we maintain our present upward economic, social and environmental momentum,” Marx said in a news release.
