Hobart Mayor sets Up Team Re-Election Effort In 2015
October 10, 2014 — Hobart Mayor Brian Snedecor, Hobart city Clerk-Treasurer Deborah Longer and five City Council members announced yesterday that they’ll seek re-election as a team in 2015.
The mayor made the announcement to about 100 supporters at the campaign kick-off at Festival Park.
Two veteran at-large Council members, Monica Wiley and Matt Claussen, haven’t yet said it they’ll join the Team Snedecor slate. Claussen is also a Hobart Police officer. Although he says he wants to run again, state legislators are considering efforts to prevent municipal employees from sitting on a town or city council or board that oversees their department’s budget.
The incumbents are so far the only ones to announce their candidacy for office in 2015.
