State Rep. Howze plans run for Detroit mayor
DETROIT (AP) - State Rep. Lisa L. Howze plans to run for Detroit mayor in 2013.
The Democrat announced Friday that she wouldn't seek reelection to her House seat this year and instead would run for mayor of Michigan's largest city.
Howze says her experience as a certified public accountant and finance professional would be key for the financially struggling city. She says her legislative experience in Lansing would be pivotal in gaining support that the city needs from the state.
The office of Detroit Mayor Dave Bing had no comment Friday on the announcement.
