Outgoing Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams is toying with running for an at-large Colorado Springs City Council seat in the April 2 election, Williams tells the Gazette. He was defeated in the Nov. 6 election by Democrat Jena Griswold.

Others expressing interest are incumbents Tom Strand and Bill Murray, former Councilor Val Snider, Army veteran Tony Gioia, and Terry Martinez, former Will Rogers Elementary School principal and former candidate for House District 18.

Williams served for eight years as an El Paso County commissioner and four as county clerk and recorder. His wife, Holly, was elected on Nov. 6 to a commission seat representing the county's northern district.

Voters will elect three at-large Council members and a mayor in the city's April 2 election. Councilor Merv Bennett can't run again due to term limits. Mayor John Suthers will seek a second term. Candidates can begin collecting signatures on nominating petitions in January.
