Atch is back: Don Atchison announces comeback bid

Don Atchison has ended the speculation and officially announced Aug 28th that he is running again for mayor.

Atchison served as mayor from 2003-2016, making him Saskatoon’s longest-serving mayor. He was narrowly defeated in 2016 to incumbent Charlie Clark. Clark took 41% to Achison’s 37%.

Atchison is now the 5th mayoral candidate to officially declare. It will likely be 6 or more candidates soon, with Mark Zielke still expected to officially join the race later this summer.
