Deer Park Mayor Robert Whisman has announced his intention to seek a third term this fall.
He said the decision was spurred by the encouragement of friends and citizens asking him to seek another four-year term. He is the first city resident to announce his candidacy for the position.
If elected, Whisman will join Earl Mix and Jim Swinyard as having served more than two terms in the mayoral position.
