Glendale Mayor Jerry Weiers won’t be able to slide into a third term as easy as expected.

As of this week, Weiers is no longer running unopposed in this year’s mayoral election.

Michelle Robertson, a longtime Glendale resident who in 2016 ran for Maricopa County superintendent of schools, formed a committee for a mayoral campaign on Tuesday.

The primary is Aug. 4. If one candidate gets more than 50 percent of votes — guaranteed if there are only two candidates — the race is declared and does not go onto the Nov. 3 general election.

Along with the mayoral race, three council seats are up for grabs this year, and all three incumbents — Council Members Joyce Clark in the Yucca District, Ian Hugh in the  Cactus District, and Ray Malnar in the Sahuaro District — are vying to keep their seats.

Only one person has officially created a campaign committee to challenge a council member so far: Lifelong West Valley resident Corey Bowen is challenging Clark.
