Wildwood Mayor Jim Bowlin to Seek Second Term
WILDWOOD, September 09, 2019 – Mayor Jim Bowlin has announced he will be seeking a second term as Wildwood’s Mayor. “In the past four years, we’ve developed a solid record for listening to our residents and achieving what they want – and doing it with better transparency. I want to continue that,” he said.
Bowlin was elected Mayor in 2016, and the City has seen several changes during his administration. These included new resident outreach programs, accelerated public improvements, and livestreaming of all the City’s public meetings.
“Our residents want us to continue to follow their direction on term limits for all appointed officials and preserve Wildwood by resisting things like LED signs and developments they don’t want,” he said. “I have a proven record of listening to our residents, and that will continue in the next term,” Bowlin added.
His goals through 2024 include finding workable solutions for improving high-speed rural internet access, resolving Lake Chesterfield issues and addressing land erosion around the City’s several watersheds.
The Mayor serves a four-year term. Filing will officially open in December 2019, with the election to follow in April 2020.
