Wilmington Mayor will seek re-election

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington Mayor Bill Saffo said Tuesday he plans to run for re-election this year.

Saffo said he is running again because there are several projects he wants to see completed.

He was appointed Mayor in July 2006 after former mayor Spence Broadhurst resigned. Since then Saffo has been re-elected in 2007, 2009 and 2011.

Saffo has spent the last 10 years in public service, serving the citizens of the city he says welcomed his family generations ago.

“It’s the quintessential immigrants dream. People came to this country for a better way of life and were able to find that life here in Wilmington and this community was very generous and very supportive,” said Saffo.

He wants to see several projects be completed including the hotel next to the Wilmington Convention Center.

“We feel that we are very close. Obviously I have my fingers crossed and I know city council seems very optimistic about this,” said Saffo.

Saffo says being Mayor means listening to the people even if they do not agree with you vision, as was the case last year over raising taxes to build a baseball stadium.

“The city council evaluated it and thought it was a pretty decent proposal. I personally liked it, but at the end of the day, the citizens were going to have to make that decision,” said Saffo.

“My vision for Wilmington is to continue to improve the quality of life here and continue to protect it, and to continue to look for ways that we can grow our economy and put people back to work,” said Saffo.

The candidate filing period begins on July 5. The election is Nov. 5.
