(KALISPELL)- Kallispell Mayor Tammi Fisher had already announced she wouldn't be running for re-election to a second term this fall. But that doesn't mean her name won't be on the ballot.
Fisher announced Wednesday that she intends to run for Senate District 4 this fall, the seat presently held by fellow Republican Jon Sonju. Fisher told The Flathead Beacon she's running because Sonju won't be seeking re-election, although he yet confirmed that news.
Re-districting is changing the boundaries on that position, which will now encompass all of downtown Kalispell.
Fisher told the Beacon the position will allow her to continue to serve the public from her "base" representing the residents of Kalispell.
