COLORADO SPRINGS – News 5 confirmed Tuesday that Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers will run for re-election next April.
Suthers made the informal announcement on the radio Tuesday morning, but he’s expected to make a formal announcement in January.
Suthers was first elected to the office in April 2015. Prior to his first term in office, he was Colorado’s attorney general for 10 years.
