Dana Williams encouraging a few people to run for mayor’s office

Jay Hamburger THE PARK RECORD

Mayor Dana Williams said on Thursday he is encouraging a few people to campaign for the mayor’s office this year.

Williams, the three-term mayor, is not seeking re-election. He declined to identify the people he has spoken to about a campaign but indicated the discussions have occurred over the past month.

He said he has encouraged a few people to seek one of the two Park City Council seats on the ballot this year as well.

Williams said each of the people he has spoken to is considering a campaign. He said he approached them with the hope they mount a campaign. Williams said fresh perspectives could lead to a better dialog during the campaign, adding that his discussions are not an indication he is displeased with the declared candidates.

Andy Beerman, a member of the City Council, is the only person to begin a campaign for the mayor’s office. The incumbents who hold the two City Council seats on the ballot — Alex Butwinski and Cindy Matsumoto — have said they will seek re-election.

Nobody else has said publicly they will campaign for the mayor’s office or the City Council seats.

The window when someone must file campaign paperwork at City Hall runs from June 3 until June 7.
