Mayor Newell will run for the 2012 Mayoral election.
He stated in a press release, "while my administration has accomplished many things, there are several projects and programs I want to see come to fruition that will not happen during this term. Among those are the proposed Event Center and a Port on the Kanawha River at Depot Street which help revitalize a large industrial area and aid businesses already located near that site."
He also stated, "this administration has had to make a lot of tough decisions which will lead to a lot of negative attacks by my opponents. However, I will conduct another positive and upbeat campaign as in the past."
