SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - South Bend 2nd District Councilmember Henry Davis Jr. announced that he is running for mayor.

Davis confirmed the announcement on Twitter on Friday afternoon. He has also launched a campaign website.

The 43-year-old Democrat has actively served on the South Bend Common Council since 2007. He served two terms before running for mayor in 2015, when he lost the primary to Pete Buttigieg.

Davis tells 16 News Now his priorities are unity and community.

“It’s time for a new style of leadership, it’s time for the city to see a new reality of itself,” Davis said. “This is 2023, we cannot continue to be led with the same spirit that’s led this city for the last 80-plus years.”

Davis will face incumbent Democrat James Mueller in the May primary. Republican Desmont Upchurch, who announced his candidacy earlier this week, is currently unopposed in the GOP primary.

The primary election is on May 2.
