Another Midlander has thrown his hat into the ring for the Mayor's race.

Midland City Councilman Wes Perry made it official today.

In front of a packed house in the Council chambers at City Hall, Perry announced he's running for Mayor, because he loves Midland, and wants to give back.

"My vision is a couple of things one is about the debt in our town, I would like to see us pay that off as soon as we can.  Next thing is developing better relationships with other entities, and really trying to continue on doing what we've been doing," Perry said.

Perry plans to vacate his at-large seat freeing it up for the November election to make sure there are no vacancies on the Council next year.
