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.
