Coun. Len Isleifson (Riverview) will announce Thursday whether he’ll seek re-election in his ward or if he’ll take a run at the mayor’s chair.
"I have been approached by many citizens of Brandon encouraging me to consider a run for the mayor’s chair, to seek re-election on city council or, as recently reported, run for MLA in Brandon East," Isleifson said in a brief news release via email around 10:30 p.m. Monday.
The press conference will be held at city hall, indicating it likely won’t involve the latter option.
"It is hard to believe that four years have almost passed since being elected as a city councillor in the Riverview ward in Brandon," the email read.
"It has been extremely rewarding and has only grown the desire I have to continue to work hard for the families of this great city."
Isleifson will hold the press conference at 2 p.m. Thursday.
