Longview Councilman Runs For Mayor

      A Longview city council member has thrown his hat into the ring and is running for mayor. District 5 councilman "Jay Dean" has become the first to say he wants to be the next mayor of Longview. In a press conference at city hall yesterday, "Dean" made it official, announcing his candidacy. This comes after former mayor, Murray Moore, resigned unexpectedly a little more than a week ago.

     He says it's important to overcome the recent turmoil in Longview politics, and get back to the business of running the city. 51 year old Dean has held office since 1998. A special election on May 7th will decide who will complete the last year remaining of Moore's term. Councilman Darryl Williams is the interim mayor for now.
