There’s another candidate running for Mayor of Flagstaff. Long-time Flagstaff resident and former city council candidate Paul Deasy announced his run for mayor Friday. He last ran for council in 2018 and lost out on a seat on council by 180 votes. Deasy said in a statement he sees running as a great opportunity to bring “much-needed new leadership to City Hall.” He added, “as Mayor I will bring energy, passion and a professional background as a policy analyst to the city council.” Deasy says he plans on running a campaign heavily focused on the issues so voters can get a clear sense of how he differs from other candidates. Deasy will be running against current city council members Charlie Odegaard and Jamie Whelan.
