Councilman Jeff Smith is hoping to serve the city of Mitchell for at least another three years.

After a more than a decade on the Mitchell City Council, Smith told The Daily Republic that he intends to run for re-election to the council.

Smith represents Ward 4 in northwestern Mitchell, and most recently ran unopposed in 2015.

Since joining the council in 2006, the city has made vast improvements to the World's Only Corn Palace, made progress on an indoor aquatic facility and much more. And Smith isn't ready to end his run yet.

"Probably the major reason is unfinished business," Smith said about his decision to run for another three-year term. "

Smith listed the Lake Mitchell restoration project, coming to a conclusion on the future of City Hall and other infrastructure improvements among his priorities.

Candidates have from March 1 to March 27 to circulate and file petitions to run for office. There are four open seats, one in each ward. Election day is June 5.
