YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - Mayor of Yuma, Doug Nicholls, is running for re-election.

Some of his top priorities for his new campaign are job creation, low taxation, public safety and civic pride.

He says it's been an honor to represent the great and amazing people of the City of Yuma on local to international issues and he believes that we have seen great growth and change during his term, however, there is more to do.
