CHARLOTTE, NC — Charlotte Mayor Dan Clodfelter says he’s ready to begin campaigning for the 2015 election.  Filing doesn’t start until July, but the Mayor says he’s launching his campaign now.

Clodfelter says the city needs consistent leadership after having four mayors since 2013.  City Council appointed the former state senator after ex-Mayor Patrick Cannon’s federal corruption scandal.

Several other Democrats announced their intentions to run for Mayor.  They include former County Commissioner Jennifer Roberts, Mayor Pro-Tem Michael Barns, and at-large council member David Howard.

On the Republican side, businessman Scott Stone says he will run.
