Third candidate enters Merdian mayoral race

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.

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.

Yesterday, Joe Palmer filed with the Meridian City Clerk to take a run at the position. He currently serves in the Idaho legislature – his fifth term in the house. Palmer is the father of current city council member Ty Palmer who is not running for reelection.
