WILLMAR — Willmar business owner Stephen James Peppin has filed to run for Willmar mayor in 2022.
This is Peppin's third attempt to run for public office. Peppin previously ran for mayor in 2018, a race that was won by current Mayor Marv Calvin, and for Willmar City Council Ward 2 in 2016, losing that bid to Julie Asmus.
He is the second person to file to run for Willmar mayor, the first being Zeke Dahl. Dahl also ran in 2018, losing out to both Calvin and Peppin in the primary.
Marv Calvin, in his State of the City address to the Willmar City Council on March 7, announced that he will not be seeking re-election. Calvin has been mayor since 2014.
