Sumner City Council member Nancy Dumas has filed to run against Incumbent Mayor Dave Enslow, according to the Pierce County elections website.

Dumas, who was elected to the council in 2011, filed Wednesday afternoon. She said she decided to run to give Sumner residents a choice for their mayor.

“I firmly believe a candidate should never run unopposed,” she said Wednesday.

Dumas said she committed to serve the community for four years, and said she will finish out her term proudly if a mayor bid doesn’t work out.

“I can give two more years if that is what the people want from me,” she said.

Dumas said transparency in government, access to information and diverse voices are issues she will promote in her bid for mayor.
