Anderson says the city has been plagued in recent years by social and economic issues -- and it's time for a change.

“In this race right now, we have three political leaders who have held office during that time," Anderson said. "During their time of power, what do we have to show for it? A $12 million deficit, crime running rampant in the city, concentrated poverty and racial tension.”

Anderson has run for mayor a few times in the past.

Green Party candidate Dan Plaat is also running for mayor.
