Christopher Taylor Running to be Ann Arbor's Next Mayor

Dec 20, 2013

Another Ann Arbor City Council member is seeking outgoing Mayor John Hieftje's job.
Third Ward Democrat Christopher Taylor today announced he's running for mayor in 2014.

Stephen Kunselman who also represents the third ward on council has already announced he's running, while Hieftje has said he won't seek re-election.

Taylor says he wants to help keep Ann Arbor great and make it even better.  Taylor says Hieftje has done a good job having Ann Arbor on good footing and he wants to maintain and expand these efforts.  He says the challenge is maintaining fiscal responsibility while providing services for the neighborhoods and downtown.
