On Tuesday, first-time councilmember Michael J. DeMarco made his bid to seek a second term official when he filed for re-election. DeMarco delivered his filing paperwork and signed petitions to the General Registrar’s office at Sisson House and was notified later in that afternoon in an e-mail from Nancy Tingen, Deputy Chief Registrar.
“I am pleased to inform you that you have fulfilled all the candidate paperwork requirements to be qualified to be on the May 6, 2014 Ballot. All of your paperwork is in order. Congratulations.”
DeMarco is campaigning on continuing his work to creating a livable, walkable city that attracts and retains people of all ages and businesses. He says he is “very excited” to be on the ballot for re-election to city council in 2014.
“Continuing to build on the strategy this mayor and council set for itself in 2012 is imperative for the future of the city. This includes growing our economic base through smart economic development and redevelopment, as well as through strong financial stewardship,” De Marco said. “This foundation helps strengthen our business community and allows us to provide high quality services to our citizens.”
DeMarco launched his campaign in January with an open house at his home and joins a field of five other incumbents, including Mayor Scott Silverthorne, who have indicated they will run for re-election. The non-partisan election is May 6.
