London Mayor Patrick Closser will run for re-election to a second term.

Closser announced his intentions at the Jan. 3 city council meeting. This year marks the last year of his current four-year term.

“I knew when I was elected a lot needed addressed and that I wouldn’t be able to accomplish all my goals in four short years,” he said. “A lot has been accomplished but there is also a lot more that needs done.”

In addition to the mayor’s seat, other London city government seats up for election this year are:

* council president, two-year term;

* council-at-large, three seats, two-year terms;

* council Ward 1, two-year term;

* council Ward 2, two-year term;

* council Ward 3, two-year term;

* council Ward 4, two-year term;

* auditor, four-year term; and

* law director, four-year term.

The only city seat not up for election this year is treasurer.

Partisan candidates must submit petitions declaring their candidacy to the Madison County Board of Elections by 4 p.m. Feb. 6. The primary election is May 7.
