Wheeling Village President Dean Argiris said Monday he will run for re-election April 4.

Village Clerk Elaine Simpson and Trustees Ken Brady, Mary Krueger and Mary Papantos will also run for re-election.


"I strongly support them all, and I encourage you do the same," Argiris said in a news release.

Argiris was first elected to his position in 2013 after defeating incumbent Judy Abruscato and former village board member Patrick Horcher. He served as a village trustee from 2001 to 2013 and was a plan commissioner from 1997 to 2001.

Argiris touts Wheeling's nearly $70 million in new construction in 2015, connecting with some of South Korea's "most prosperous cities," and the creation of new jobs as major accomplishments his first term.

"Clearly a lot of work remains to be done," Argiris said. "There are many important projects that are currently in progress -- including the ongoing transformation of our downtown, with the development of the Wheeling Town Center, which must be guided toward a successful finish."

The village president and clerk are all elected to 4-year terms. Three of the village's six trustees are elected every two years. The trustees not up for election are Ray Lang, Joe Vito and Dave Vogel.
