Tony Sandoval will run for Yakima City Council again this year, he announced this week in a news release.
A former county Democratic Party chairman and local businessman who closed his inflatable bouncy house company, A1 Jumpers, at the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Sandoval will run for the city’s District 4 seat.
According to his news release, Sandoval would focus on crime reduction, open government, community health and economic development.
Filing for local office happens May 17-21, with the primary in August and general election in November. Council terms are four years.
Three Yakima council seats are up this year. The District 4 seat is currently held by Kay Funk, who has said she does not plan to run for reelection.
