Oda announced in March 2022 that she would seek a second four-year term.

“A rare winter tornado and COVID started my term off with immediate impact which we still feel today,” her campaign material reads.

Lutz has been city council president for four years — the same amount of time Oda has been mayor.

“I am committed to grow our community to make it a place where our children and grandchildren can have a bright future,” Lutz wrote on social media.

Oda said she will remain mayor through the end of December 2023, but this election will likely decide who will be mayor on Jan. 1, 2024.
