Northwood Mayor Mark Stoner, who is completing three terms as mayor, is running for re-election this fall. Stoner, 55, of Ross Street, was appointed to council in 1993, then was re-elected to another term before he ran for mayor.
Stoner said he’s running again because he believes he’s made “a positive difference” in the city while overseeing deep budget cuts as a result of the economic recession.
