Battle Ground Mayor Adrian Cortes plans to run for re-election to his city council seat later this year.

Cortes was first elected to the Position 4 council seat in November 2017 and, in January 2020, was appointed as mayor for a two-year term. He will appear in the Aug. 4 primary election and, if a challenger files for the seat, Nov. 2 general election ballots.

Cortes, 44, is also a member of the C-Tran Board of Directors and a special education teacher at Camas High School. In 2019, he ran as a fiscally conservative Democrat for the Clark County Council District 4 seat and lost to current Councilor Gary Medvigy.
