Fort Dodge mayor not opposed in re-election bid

FORT DODGE, Iowa (AP) — Fort Dodge will re-elect a mayor this fall for a full term for the first time in 24 years.

The Fort Dodge Messenger reports (http://bit.ly/14eMAzW ) that Mayor Matt Bemrich was the only person to file for the mayor’s office by Thursday’s deadline.

Since he has no opposition, that will make him the first Fort Dodge mayor elected to a second consecutive full term since 1989, when Mike McCarville was re-elected.

Bemrich, an electrician, says he hopes in his next term that the city will continue developing new and improved housing.

The city pays its mayor $15,000 annually.
