JAMESTOWN – No matter who wins this November, Jamestown will have a new mayor. The City of Jamestown Democratic Committee is hoping it is local Attorney Eddie Sundquist.

“I believe in the strength of Jamestown and our ability to meet future challenges head on. We are a city with a rich history and strong foundation, fueled by people who are passionate about this community. I want to capitalize on these strengths as we step forward into new opportunities. Jamestown has an exciting future ahead and I want to help us get there,” said Sundquist.

Along with Sundquist, who will head the Democratic ticket, the Jamestown City Committee also endorsed the following council members positions:

Jamestown City Council At-Large: Tamu Graham-Reinhardt, Gregory Rabb, At-Large and Taylor Scott.

Ward Council candidates are as follows:
