Amarillo Mayor Ginger Nelson will not seek re-election


Thursday morning, Amarillo Mayor Ginger Nelson announced that she will not seek re-election in 2023.

"I'm announcing today that I will not run for another term as mayor. It is my hope that announcing this decision early will create the best opportunity for our city to select its next mayor.

"In reflecting on what our city has accomplished together over the past six years, I am amazed at the list. From the Texas Tech University School of Veterinary Medicine to Sod Poodles baseball and a new stadium, from record-breaking economic development bringing more than 4,000 new jobs to historic deals for purchasing water rights and expanding broadband access, from investments in public safety and just this week a historic Army contract awarded to Bell Flight bringing billions of dollars in additional economic impact:  Amarillo, you’ve accomplished so much! 

"It has been a great honor to serve, and I am grateful to the citizens for the trust and support they’ve shown our councils over the past three terms. 

"Kevin and I are proud to live in Amarillo and believe Amarillo is in a unique season of growth and opportunity. Our next mayor will have our full support as we all work together to make life in Amarillo the best it has ever been for all its residents," Nelson said in a Fecebook post.

Nelson has served as the mayor of Amarillo since 2017.
