From the Times-Call:
LONGMONT — Mayor Dennis Coombs announced Wednesday that he would run for re-election.
Coombs, who won his first term by a hair’s-breadth margin two years ago, is the first to enter the 2013 mayoral race and the third candidate overall for the Longmont City Council. Parks and recreation board vice chairman Rick Accountius is running for the Ward 2 seat held by departing Councilwoman Katie Witt, and Councilman Gabe Santos is defending his at-large seat.
It’s been a busy two years. In that time, among other things, Longmont has seen a new city manager, new oil and gas regulations, the first steps on the Twin Peaks Mall redevelopment — and legal action related to the last two issues. On the whole, Coombs said, he’s proud of the council’s record. But, he added, it is the council’s record and not just his own; his main role, he said, has been to help bring people together.
