Bloomington Deputy Mayor Don Griffin Jr. said he will run for mayor next year to focus on housing, sustainability, quality of life and making Bloomington more of a cultural destination.

The 52-year-old real estate agent and small business owner said he has been inspired to run for office primarily because he has witnessed, as deputy mayor, how good leadership can improve people’s lives.

“You’re helping thousands of people at a time,” he said.

Griffin is expected to face at least two challengers in the Democratic primary in May. Bloomington City Council President Susan Sandberg and former Habitat for Humanity of Monroe County CEO Kerry Thomson have said they will run for mayor as well. The current mayor, John Hamilton, has said he will not seek re-election. The city’s new mayor will be determined in the November 2023 election. The term would begin in January 2024.
