Wiseman won’t seek third term as Starkville mayor

–Parker Wiseman will conclude an eight-year stint as Starkville’s mayor on June 30 when he steps away from local politics.

Wiseman, who was elected mayor in 2009 when he was 28 years old, confirmed to The Dispatch he will not seek a third term in next year’s municipal election cycle.

The mayor’s decision is twofold: Wiseman, now 36, said he has accomplished a large amount of the agenda he set when entering public service seven years ago and now he and his wife, Lindsey, are expecting their third child this spring.
