TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - Toledo Mayor Paula Hicks-Hudson made it official on Saturday.
She is running for re-election.
Hicks-Hudson kicked off her re-election bid in the morning at a campaign event in downtown Toledo.
The event was highlighted by an endorsement from Toledo's-own Robert Easter Jr., the lightweight boxing champion of the world.
The mayor says her priorities are the stabilization of neighborhoods and development of a regional water system.
"That needs to be finished, and finished in a comprehensive way so that all parties can win and we are able to use that water as the economic asset that it really is," said Mayor Hicks-Hudson.
The mayor says she believes her record on keeping water safe and steady job growth are the reasons she should be re-elected.
