Montgomery County Commission Chairman Elton Dean has thrown his hat into the ring to run for mayor. He used a video on social media to make the announcement. In that video, Dean professed his wish to be the mayor that works to move all of Montgomery forward. He says quote, “no more West Montgomery and East Montgomery. Just all of us working with one goal; to better our entire community.”
He outlined his platform as one for better jobs, improved education and upgrades to Montgomery’s quality of life.
Montgomery Mayor Todd Strange has already said he is not running for re-election. The municipal election is set for August 27th.
