A year from now, the City of Ypsilanti will have a new Mayor. Paul Schreiber announced over the weekend he will not seek re-election in 2014. Schreiber was first elected mayor in 2006, and will have completed eight years in office when next November's election rolls around. In his written announcement Sunday, Schreiber said he has enjoyed his seven years as Mayor, but now it's time to step aside to allow the next Mayor to lead the city.

On Friday of last week, The Executive Director of the Non-Profit, "Growing Hope" announced her candidacy for Ypsilanti Mayor. Amanda Edmonds says she has the energy to move the city forward with solution-based leadership.
