Chelan City Councilman Mike Cooney told Kozi listeners Friday morning he is considering a run for the Mayors position.
Morning Host Jay Witherbee asked Cooney if he was a candidate for Mayor during the regular Council update Friday morning. Cooney, who was with Mayor Bob Goedde at the time, said although he’s a ways from making himself an official candidate, he is seriously considering the idea.
Mayor Bob Goedde earlier this month announced his intention to seek an unprecedented second term. He too made the announcement on Kozi's Second Cup of Coffee Program.
The filing deadline for the upcoming election season isn’t until June so the field of candidates will likely change. The primary is set for August and the general election will be November 8th.
