Last night on Mondays With The Mayor, while filling n for Mayor Dan Allers, Vice Mayor Jim Atterholt indicated he is leaning toward running for re-election and a formal announcement would be coming soon.
Jim and his wife Brenda have been able to stabilize their living situation on Fort Myers Beach. The condo unit they owned was heavily damaged by Hurricane Ian and is still uninhabitable. They were able to sell that unit and find another condo unit on the island to purchase recently. Atterholt said Monday night with life a bit more stable these days he looks forward to continuing to serve.
Atterholt’s first 4-year term expires in 2024. His seat, Mayor Dan Allers’ seat and the seat now occupied by Bill Veach are all up in 2024. Mayor Allers has already announced he’s running for re-election while Veach has not announced one way or the other.
Atterholt was recently reappointed by the council as Vice Mayor.
