Sanford native T. Chet Mann was elected to the office of Mayor in 2013. His Open for Business platform is based on three main goals:

  • Pump new life into downtown with support for small businesses and the arts.
  • Actively recruit new jobs into town by bringing time and energy to the task. 
  • Provide reliable city services at a reasonable cost by using the best management practices.
He remains committed to Sanford and encourages every resident to work with the City to bring a fresh start to Sanford by providing dynamic leadership.

In Mayor Mann's own words, "I want to work with residents to move our town forward with new energy and ideas. Together we will make Sanford an even better place to live and work - for my family and yours."
