It’s official: Dave Bing is running for mayor

Rochelle Riley has the scoop for the Detroit Free Press:

Saying that it is time for someone "with a clean, fresh outlook" to lead the city, Detroit businessman Dave Bing confirmed to the Free Press on Thursday that he definitely is running for mayor.

"I've made my decision," Bing said in an exclusive interview two months after the Free Press first revealed he was considering a run.

[...] "I'm not a quote-unquote politician," he said. "A lot of politicians seem to try to set themselves up for a career, so they try to run multiple terms, and I think that's a mistake.

"You can only get elected for one term at a time. If you do a good job, then voters will want to vote you back," he said. "I will keep that option open."
