Michael Estes Announces He Will Not Seek Another Term at TC Mayor

The Traverse City mayor has announced he will not seek another term as the city’s mayor.

Michael Estes is currently serving his third term, and now final term, as mayor.

Estes says he’s disappointed by some recent commission votes, but believes it will survive fine without him. 

Elections for Traverse City’s new mayor and a city commissioner seat will be held in November.

The city clerk tells 9&10 News only one person has filed for a city commissioner seat.

That is Parks and Recreation Commissioner Brian Haas.

Candidates have until July 21 to apply.
