Kasten first won election to the council in November 2009 and was re-elected in 2013. She came to the council after nine years on the town's Architectural and Site Review Board.
Kasten and her colleagues on the council added a year to their terms in 2016 in keeping with new state regulations that shift most local elections to even-numbered years.
She represents District 6, neighborhoods east of Mountain Home Road and south of Woodside Road, including Woodside Heights east of Interstate 280.
Dick Brown, a resident currently sitting on the Architectural and Site Review Board, has taken out nomination papers for the District 6 seat.
Councilman Dave Tanner, who represents District 4 neighborhoods along Canada Road and north of Olive Hill Road and Arbor Court, has also announced he will not seek re-election. He will be moving to his house in Auburn after his term is up, he said. For now, he travels there on weekends to join his wife, he said.
The Woodside council has seven members, each of whom represents one of seven districts, but who are elected at large — by the entire community.
