BANKS - City Counselor Stephanie Jones, 45, has filed to run for the post of Banks mayor, and current Mayor Pete Edison has filed to run for Jones’ position 4 on the city council. 

It’s a game of political musical chairs that leaves just one empty position, held currently by City Councilor Michael Nelson in position 2. Nelson has not said if he will run for reelection. 

Jones filed to run on Wednesday, August 12, and Edison filed to run on Thursday, August 13.

In an email to the Banks Post, Jones said she spoke with Edison about her interest in his position before filing.
