Suthers sworn in to second term as mayor


John Suthers was sworn in as Colorado Springs Mayor Tuesday, alongside three city council members. 

Wayne Williams, Colorado’s former secretary of state, was sworn in for his first term on the council. Bill Murray and Tom Strand were each sworn in for their second terms. 

The returners said they want to build on the momentum from their first terms. 

“I still have the same priorities of infrastructure development and economic development,” Suthers said. “I have a better sense of where we’re going, and a lot of the task is to follow through on some of the progress we’ve made.”

“This time around, I’m very interested in what we can do with our public safety situation, for our police and fire department,” Strand said. “And very interested in what we can do with finding more affordable housing for young people that are moving into the area.”

Suthers said this will likely be the last public office he runs for.
