Mayor Will Run Again In Defiance

Defi­ance Mayor Bob Arm­strong announced that he plans to seek a fourth term. The 72 year old Demo­c­rat announced on Wednes­day that he planned to pick up his nom­i­nat­ing peti­tions for the May pri­mary.

The mayor’s race will be decided in the Novem­ber gen­eral elec­tion, and if re-elected, Arm­strong will serve another four year term begin­ning in Jan­u­ary of 2016.

The Cres­cent News reports that as of when the Novem­ber 2015 elec­tion is held, Arm­strong will be 73, and that will make him 77 at the end of the next four-year may­oral term. Arm­strong told the paper that he is not deterred by age and he is healthy, and enjoys being mayor.
