New Bedford Mayor Announces Re-Election Campaign

New Bedford Mayor Jon Mitchell declared his candidacy for the 2016 mayoral race at a news conference on Tuesday.
Mitchell cited several times the importance of job growth and how factories are the heartbeat of the city. Mitchell took office in 2011 and ran unopposed in 2013.

Three other people have pulled papers to run for mayor, but no one else has officially declared. The deadline is August 18th.
