DETROIT (WKZO) -- Detroit Mayor Dave Bing says he is looking into running for re-election.

Bing says he has taken the first steps toward a second term in office, but has not made a firm decision to run again.  Detroit's 69-year-old mayor picked up petitions at the city clerk's office, and will need 500-signatures by May 14th to get on the August primary ballot.

Other mayoral hopefuls include Wayne County Sheriff Benny Napoleon, former Detroit Medical CEO Mike Duggan, former State Representative Lisa Howze, former Detroit City attorney Krystal Crittendon, State Representative Fred Durhal, Jr. and previous candidate Tom Barrow.
