Mayor Ginther is Running for Re-Election
Mayor Andrew Ginther is running for re-election. On Monday, Feb. 4, Ginther filed over 3,000 petition signatures for re-election as mayor with the Franklin County Board of Elections. The democrat is the first to throw his name in for this year’s race, in which the seat for mayor as well as four City Council seats will be up for grabs on Nov. 5, 2019.
“As your mayor, I’ve focused on expanding opportunity for every person in every neighborhood,” Ginther said in a press release. “I’m asking for your support again to continue building a bold, progressive future for the city I love.”
Ginther was elected as mayor in 2015, after serving on City Council and the Columbus Board of Education. He says he aims to continue the work done over the last four years with a deeper focus on affordable housing.
The deadline to submit petition signature for the office of Mayor of Columbus is Wednesday, Feb. 6. The Board of elections will validate the petitions by Feb. 19. The primary election is on May 7, and the general election is on Nov. 5.
