Manhattan Mayor Mark Hatesohl will seek another term on the Manhattan City Commission.
Hatesohl is currently in his third term, having previously served also from 2003 to 2009, before being elected again in 2019. He becomes the first city commission candidate to file for the 2023 election cycle.
In a statement, Hatesohl says “these times call for strong leadership and problem-solving capabilities in our community,” lamenting himself as a “champion for creating an environment conducive to business success.” His priorities will be continued economic growth, community revitalization and fiscal responsibility.
Hatesohl is the owner of Chiropractic Family Health Center in Manhattan.
Hatesohl is one of three sitting commissioners whose terms expire this year. Commissioner Linda Morse is in the fourth year of her term. John Matta is nearing the end of his second year, after winning a 2-year term in 2021. Neither commissioner has signaled if they’ll seek another term.
