WAUSAU (WAOW) -- Mayor Jim Tipple has announced he will be running for a third term as the Mayor of Wausau.
Tipple said if he is re-elected, his plan is to work aggressively toward bringing new companies and new opportunities to the Wausau area, including more high tech jobs.
The Mayor told Newsline 9 it was a tough decision to run again, but he wants to continue working to move the City of Wausau forward.
"I had a goal of doing two terms and then moving over for someone else. The job is not done, so I want to have the opportunity to finish up some things that I think need to be finished up," said Mayor Tipple.
City leaders said no one else has announced to run so far. Potential candidates cannot officially start campaigning or collecting campaign contributions until after the registration opens on December 1st.
