BLACKFOOTâ€”Retired Army Lt. Colonel, Paul Marion Loomis, has hopes of continuing a life of service as Blackfoot's new mayor.
Loomis joins fellow candidates Dan Cravens, Rick Bigler, Carlos Mercardo, Carlos Marinez and John Hoobler in his quest to replace current mayor Mike Virtue who will not seek reelection in November.
Loomis' decision to run for mayor is based upon his belief that "service is important in the community," as demonstrated in his 26 years of service in the United States Army.
