Conway political season already heating up

Conway’s political season seems to be taking cues from the weather.

Things are starting to warm up.

Although city elections are nearly eight months away, candidates have begun organizing campaigns and some are even making announcements.

Mayor Alys Lawson launched her reelection bid last week. Two incumbents have also confirmed that they will run again and a third said she will be on the ballot, though she hasn’t revealed which office she will pursue.

Along with the incumbents, a college student from Conway said he’s seriously considering a run for mayor.
