BUTTE - Butte's chief executive plans to make a run for a second term this year.

Dave Palmer said he will file this week to try to win a second four-year term as chief executive of Butte-Silver Bow.

Palmer won his first term in 2016 by defeating incumbent Matt Vincent.

Palmer said he wants to run again because there's more work to be done.

“I think the morale is up in Butte-Silver Bow right now and we have a good team in place, and, like I said, it takes a long time to get anything accomplished, but I think we're on the right track,” said Palmer.

The date to begin filing for public office in Butte will be this Thursday, through March 9.
