Bloomington City Council member Donna Boelen is running for reelection.

Bloomington City Council member Donna Boelen is running for a second term in next year's nonpartisan election.

Boelen represents Ward 2 that includes portions of southwest Bloomington.

“My focus is and has been fiscal responsibly and sensible stewardship of taxpayer dollars. I acknowledge that the role of municipal government is to provide quality basic services at a reasonable cost,” Boelen said in a news release.

Boelen said her leadership style is to serve by listening and working to build consensus with other council members.

In April, Boelen was appointed mayor pro tem when Jamie Mathy resigned from the council.

Candidates can file for the April 2023 municipal election from Nov. 21-28. Wards 2, 4, 6 and 8 will be up for election next year, along with Ward 1 to fill the remaining two years of Mathy's term.
