From Talk of the Town:

By Jennifer Zartman Romano

Columbia City Mayor Jim Fleck spoke to his staff Friday and announced that he has decided not to run for re-election this November.
Fleck, a two-term Mayor and retired attorney, also told fellow Democrats of the news during a meeting on Saturday.
“We are extremely proud of Mayor Fleck’s service to Columbia City,” said Whitley County Democratic Party chairman Scott Allison. “He represented our town with class, dignity and integrity.”
“Not only is he beloved here, but across the state of Indiana as well,” Allison continued. “I am truly grateful for the example that he has set for the next generation Democratic leaders.  His leadership will be sorely missed.  Mayor Fleck and I look forward to our continued friendship within the Whitley County Democratic Party for many years to come.”
Individuals interested in running for Columbia City Mayor will need to file their candidacy between January 19 to February 19, 2011.
Thus far, approximately three individuals are said to be interested in running for the seat, but no official announcements have been made yet.
