Mayor Peter Bober (L) and State Sen. Eleanor Sobel

By Buddy Nevins, BrowardBeat.com, for SouthFloridaReporter.com, Aug 27, 2015 – Mayor Peter Bober of Hollywood is not running for re-election.

He announced his decision in a letter to employees.

Speculation for his replacement immediately fell upon state Sen. Eleanor Sobel, D-Hollywood, who is leaving the Legislature next year because of term limits.

“No one could beat her if she decides to run,” one long-time political observer says.

Another says, “She is loved in Hollywood, has name ID and could walk into this.”
