WILLMAR - Council member Tim Johnson announced at Monday’s Willmar City Council meeting that he will not run for a third term in Ward 2.
While being a council member can be demanding, Johnson said he has enjoyed his time on the council, working with past and present councils, mayors and city staff.

Johnson retired from a law career a couple of years ago and said his wife and himself want to take advantage of that.
“I look forward to being fully retired,” Johnson said.
Steve Peppin and Julie Asmus have both announced their intention to run for the open Ward 2 seat. Filing for city office runs from May 17 to May 31 at 5 p.m. Four council seats are open for election, one in each ward. Council Member Denis Anderson will not be running for reelection in Ward 1 and Kathy Schwantes has announced her candidacy for that seat. Council Member Steve Ahmann in Ward 3 and Council Member Shawn Mueske in Ward 4 have not announced whether they plan to run for reelection.
