Carbondale mayor Mike Henry announced Friday he is running for reelection.
Henry says his first four-year term has been marked by establishing a closer relationship with the administration of SIU-C, working to fund and implement the first two phases of the Downtown Streetscape plan and overseeing the opening of the city's first downtown hotel.
If re-elected, Mayor Henry says he wants to continue to work closely with SIU-C to rebuild enrollment and continue the pursuit of federal and state funding for a new Multi-Modal Transportation Center.
The consolidated primary, if more than two candidates file for mayor, will take place on February 26. The consolidated election will take place on April 2.
