Former Geraldton mayor Vickie Hablitz will challenge incumbent Shane Van Styn in the upcoming mayoral election in October.

Ms Hablitz announced her candidature on Facebook tonight.

The then Vickie Petersen was mayor of the City of Geraldton from 2001-2007, before the City merged with Greenough and later Mullewa to become the City of Greater Geraldton.

Mayor Van Styn, who has held office since 2015, recently said he would stand again.
