Mayor Warford Not Seeking Re-Election


Mayor John Warford says it is time for him to pass the baton.

He will not seek re-election in June as Mayor of Bismarck for his fourth term.

Warford says this was a very difficult decision for him to make, but after 12 years, it feels right.

But this is not the end of his leadership career.

On the same day he announces he's stepping down as mayor, he announces his new position.

He will be the new Dean of the Gary Tharaldson School of Business at the University of Mary.

"I'm humbled and honored to join this team here. Team Mary, team business. I will bring my passion for young people that I've had for 40 years. I will carry it on. They are the essence of life and of our future. So thank you very much. Go Marauders," says John Warford, Mayor of Bismarck.

Warford says he made the decision to step down as mayor before the opportunity as Dean presented itself.

He will be appointed as the new Dean after he completes his final term as Mayor.
