Bill Connors, Bettendorf 3rd Ward alderman, has announced he will run for re-election.

He filled a vacancy in a March special election after the death of Debe LaMar. 

The special election was to fulfill the remainder of LaMar's term, which ends in 2019. In March, Connors said he planned to run again when the term was fulfilled in November.
