Ypsilanti City Council member Pete Murdock says he's filed nominating petitions to run for Mayor.
Murdock says Ypsilanti has done a lot to "right its ship", and he'd like to help maintain that direction.
"We've done a lot of things financially and things are looking a little better than they were four years ago, six years ago," Murdock says. "I think I have the experience and knowledge to provide that leadership."
Murdock says public safety and economic development will continue to be big issues, and he's hopeful the AAATA transit millage will pass next month.
