CLINTON — Ward 2 Clinton City Councilman Mike Kearney has announced his intention to run for re-election to his current seat on Nov. 6.

“Clinton has a number of very exciting opportunities that should be presenting themselves in the next four years. I look forward to encouraging this development for the benefit of the community.

“It is my wish to improve the quality of life for all the citizens of Clinton, develop new job opportunities for our children and grandchildren and bring the tax rate for homeowners more in line with that in other communities in the region.”
