Sharon Weston Broome planning to seek re-election in 2020
BATON ROUGE - Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome said she will be running for re-election this year.
Broome said in her 2020 State of the City she hasn't picked a date for a formal announcement and wants to solidify a few goals before the official start of her re-election campaign. Last month, Broome sent an email to supporters, asking her followers to start sending donations to help her reach a $5,000 goal by Jan. 1.
Municipal elections are scheduled for Nov, 3. Qualifying for the mayoral race begins July 15.
