A Youngsville councilman says he will run for mayor in this year's municipal election.
Ken Ritter made the announcement this morning.
Ritter is finishing his first term as a Youngsville councilman. He says his platform will include, among other planks, road and infrastructure improvements, economic development, and promoting the town's new athletic complex.
The current mayor, Wilson Viator, tells KATC that he is retiring from public office following this term and is not seeking reelection.
