Rep. Murphy Withdraws from Lansing’s Mayor Consideration

By  | 

State Rep. Michael C. Murphy withdrew his plans to run for the Mayor of Lansing, due in part to a death in the family. His decision could spur the interest of two politicians in the office of the mayor.

Senator Virg Bernero says he's 99-percent sure he’ll run for the office of mayor. His only concern is what his family thinks, and could make a decision as early as Tuesday.

Also actively researching her chances is City Council President Carol Wood.

Registration to be officially recognized as a candidate ends May 13.
