Victoria is also looking for a few people to step-up and become leaders for the city. The Mayoral Race is heating up, and it’s still a good three months until Election Day.
Even though city elections are still about three months away, the Mayoral Race for the city of Victoria is already attracting attention. Longtime Mayor Will Armstrong plans to seek another term, sticking with the same ideals and principals he said he's well known for. If re-elected, Mayor Armstrong hopes to lead the city into continued economic growth, but wants to put more of an effort into a long neglected need the city is increasingly facing. The newest candidate to the mayor’s race is only 22-years-old, but strongly feels it’s time for a new generation of leaders to take the reins.
Richard Deases a Mayoral candidate wants to improve the future of Victoria, both by economic development and improving the state of the city’s budget. District three councilmen and former Mayor pro tem Paul Polasek is also in the race to lead the city. According to county elections officials, Polosek would have to resign from his district three position in order to seek the mayor’s office. He will however continue to represent district three until the Election Day, which is May 11th. We attempted to contact Mr. Polasek but were unsuccessful.
