Two Mt. Angel councilors confirm they are seeking re-election

July 2022 Posted in Business, Community

Incumbents for two out of the three Mt. Angel City Council seats on the Nov. 8 ballot have confirmed their intent to run for re-election.

Councilor Tony Astorga confirmed to Our Town he will be running, while Councilor Matthew Donohue has filed his candidate paperwork with the city.

Councilor Ray Eder had not responded to inquiries and had not filed with the city as of press time.

The office of mayor will also be on the ballot, coinciding with the recent passing of late Mayor Don Fleck. Council President Pete Wall, who is currently acting mayor, said if he is chosen by the council to complete Fleck’s term, he does not plan to run for mayor.

Donohue is finishing the term he won in the 2018 election. 

Eder is concluding his fourth elected term after first winning his seat in 2004. 

Astorga was appointed in January of 2021 after Fleck, a councilor at the time, was sworn in after being elected mayor in 2020.
