PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - Former Parkersburg Mayor Jimmy Colombo says he’ll seek his old job following the retirement of Robert Newell.

Colombo tells the Parkersburg News and Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1FBGriM) that he plans to apply to become interim mayor because he loves the city.

A Wood County Democratic committee must nominate three potential replacements to Parkersburg’s City Council, which would select a candidate.

Colombo says he’s not assuming that he would be selected.

Colombo served as Parkersburg mayor from 1998 to 2005. The Democrat decided against seeking a third term.



The next election for mayor is in 2016. City attorney Joe Santer has been appointed acting mayor.
