Phil Mundy has announced his plans to seek the Republican nomination for a full term on the Jasper Common Council.
Mundy was selected in January to complete Mayor Dean Vonderheide’s term on the council after Vonderheide was appointed mayor by a Republican caucus.
In a release Mundy says as a small business owner and building owner in downtown Jasper, he has been excited about the direction the community is going with the many construction projects, library and cultural center, upgrades to our parks system and so forth.
Mundy says he would love to see that continue as is fiscally possible.
Mundy added that the community needs to stay the course so businesses, large and small, can attract quality employees to continue to grow.
