Mayor of North St. Paul won’t seek reelection

Residents in North St. Paul will have a new mayor following the next election.

Current mayor Terry Furlong announced Wednesday he won’t be running for reelection after having been in the position since 2018. Previously, Furlong served on the city’s Parks and Recreation Commission, on the Economic Development Authority and as a City Councilor.
