OWENSBORO, Ky. (WEHT) – An Owensboro city leader announces he will be running for mayor.

And he did it during a radio station show on Facebook Live.

City Commissioner Larry Conder made his mayoral campaign official during “Live with Jeff” hosted by WBKR.

Conder said he wants to lay a foundation for the long-term vision of the city.

One of Conder’s ideas would be to start talking about a second bypass.

Something he said wouldn’t happen overnight.

“Those types of ideas. That vision that I just exemplified is what we need as a community to move us into 2020 with perfect vision.”

Owensboro had five mayoral candidates in the last election.

Current Mayor Tom Watson has not indicated if he will run again.
