Mayor Tony Yarber announced on Friday that he will seek reelection for mayor of the City of Jackson.

He was speaking at the Friday morning forum at Koinonia coffee shop near JSU when he made his first mention of next year's election.

He told the crowd that his team has done a lot of hard work and said, "Yeah, I'm running again."

In April 2014, Yarber became the youngest mayor elected in Jackson. Before becoming mayor, he served as City Councilman for Ward 6 since 2009.
