The incumbent mayor of Belleville is taking aim at another term.

Taso Christopher has filed his nomination papers for the October election.

Christopher was elected as the city’s mayor in 2014 after serving two previous terms on council.

He is the second person to enter the mayor’s race after fellow city businessman and incumbent councillor Mitch Panciuk filed his papers in late May.

Potential candidates have until July 27 to file their papers and you can see a list of those who have filed nominations by clicking here.
