— Lexington Mayor Randy Halfacre is running for re-election, saying Monday he wants to oversee completion of several projects.

His intention to be a candidate on the Nov. 5 ballot was announced in his State of the Town address. He has been mayor for nearly nine years.

Among items on his to-do list:

• Creating a walking path with boardwalk around the 27-acre Old Mill Pond, the latest effort to help revitalize downtown.

• Installing traffic signals on major commuter routes that adjust with vehicle flow as soon as next year.

• Adding landscape on major intersections leading into town, with the first at I-20 and U.S. 378.
