Eau Claire (WQOW)- There are now two Eau Claire City Council members vying to be council president.

Council member Terry Weld said he’s running to lead the council because he’s lived in Eau Claire most of his life and loves the city.

He’s now running against current acting City Council President Andrew Werthmann.

Weld said he wants Eau Claire to stay on track, stay balanced and be responsive to everyone.

“I think that the inclusiveness portion of this is probably key and whether or not we’re working hard enough on that,” Weld said. “I don’t know that’s my concern that maybe we’re not including everyone and giving everyone a voice and bringing the neighborhoods in together and being a part of this and letting them speak as well.”

“I think folks have known me and know the services I’ve given to this community and the way that I try to represent as many folks as I can and try and do a good job, so I think my leadership speaks for itself,” Werthmann said.

Five city council spots will be on the ballot in the April election.

Weld’s current spot on city council is up for re-election, but he’s running for president.

Catherine Emmanuelle and Kate Beaton are campaigning to keep their seats.

Michael Xiong and David Strobel announced they aren’t seeking re-election.
