MASON CITY – Ward 1 Councilman of Mason City John Lee announced this weekend he will seek a third term on the city council.
Lee, a history teacher, made the announcement via social media:
It’s been almost 8 years that I decided to run for City Council. I’ve always seen what Mason City can be, truly one of the premier large towns in the Midwest. Over the past eight years, I have been part of a city who has slowly started believing in itself and pulling from the same end of the rope. Mason City is only beginning to see its full potential.
Just in 2019, Mason City has over 100 million new investment; a large expansion by Kraft foods, a new business in the Bushel Boys, a new Arena, hotel/convention center, Apartment complex, development in the old SouthPort, a new music Pavilion to be built, Music Man having another run on broadway. This is only the beginning.
Mason City has a long ways to go. However, with the Mayor, City Administrator Burnett, the current council, the experience of your staff, but most importantly, the citizens of Mason City who have continually worked to make this a great place to live and visit, you can continue to make great strides.
If the citizens of Ward 1 and Mason City see that I warrant another four years, I would humbly enjoy representing them for another four years. So I am proud and excited to announce my candidacy for Ward 1, City Councilman of Mason City.
