(DETROIT) -- Mayor Dave Bing filled out paperwork Thursday that would allow him to run a re-election campaign this November.
According to the Detroit News, Bing has not yet decided if he wants to run for re-election and will make the choice in the coming weeks.
The deadline for filing the petitions to run for office is May 14.
Bing was a basketball star and a businessman before being elected in 2009. Under his watch, Detroit has struggled economically, resulting in the appointment of Emergency Financial Manager Kevyn Orr earlier this year.
If Bing does run for re-election, he would join a crowd of candidates hoping to revitalize and rebuild the city of Detroit.
