John Dooley has confirmed he’s running for a fourth term as mayor of Nelson.
He made his announcement on Juice FM radio Friday morning.
It remains to be seen if anyone else will enter the race for the top job on council.
He was asked if he’d prefer a challenger?
In the last civic election Dooley had no credible opposition unlike the 2008 and 2005 elections.
Dooley says he remains passionate and excited about the community and as part of his platform highlights the need to work with the queen city’s various volunteer organisations.
