Mayor Andrew Halverson has confirmed he will not seek a third term as Mayor of Stevens Point.
Halverson was first elected in 2007 and again in 2011, challenged in the most recent race by Alderman Mike Wiza, who went on to be re-elected as 4th District representative.
Wiza on Thursday would not confirm whether he would again run for mayor, but did say he would decide soon.
Alderman Roger Trzebiatowski told City-Times staff on Thursday he says he hopes Alderman Jerry Moore runs for the position.
Moore said he’s considered running for mayor but has not made a decision yet, saying he would need to speak with his family before making any decisions. Moore was until recently President of the Common Council and previously served a chairman of the Finance Committee.
Halverson was unavailable for comment Thursday. Check back for updates.
