Another local may throw his hat into the race for City Council.

Mike Finlayson, 46, who serves as the vice president and retail managing officer of MidWestOne Bank in downtown Iowa City, said that while he is not sure if he will run this year, he is seriously considering it.

“My interest in the City Council race is still exploratory at this point,” Finlayson said in an e-mail. “I do believe I will run sometime in the future … but I am reviewing my professional and personal commitments prior to making the leap this year.”

Finlayson said he has a fiscally conservative approach to budget management and analysis.

He lives at 2365 Cae Drive, placing him in Iowa City’s District A, currently held by Ross Wilburn.

Wilburn will not seek re-election, but Finlayson did not indicate whether he would run at-large or for a district position.
