With Tammy de Weerd deciding to end her time leading city hall after sixteen years, three candidates are now in the race to replace her.

Robert Simison currently serves as de Weerd’s chief of staff and announced his intent to replace his boss shortly after her announcement in February.

Anne Little Roberts currently serves on Meridian City Council, a seat she took in January 2016. She tweeted her intent to run the night of de Weerd’s announcement and formally filed in April.
