Mayor Won't Run



Alma Mayor Bob Scow announced he is not running for re-election in April.

Scow said a change in employment since his election two years ago made it difficult to continue serving as mayor.

Two city council aldermen, Gary Ruff and Jim Wilkie, have already tossed their hats into the ring for mayor.
  
Alma City Clerk Linda Torgerson said Ruff has filed candidacy for mayor and Wilkie has taken out nomination papers with intent to run for mayor.

Wilkie, a 1st Ward alderman, is up for re-election to a 3-year term in April, but would give up his seat if he files for mayor.

Ruff is city council president and mid-term in a 2-year term as alderman-at-large in Alma. He would keep his seat on the council if unsuccessful in a bid for mayor.

Election of a new mayor to a 2-year term is scheduled on April 1st. Candidates for mayor have until 5 p.m. on Jan. 7 to file nomination and candidacy papers.

Also up for election April 1st is incumbent 2nd Ward alderman Dave Earney. Earney had not yet filed intent as of Wednesday.....
