The mayor of New York's third-largest city said he is "strongly" considering seeking a fourth term in an exclusive interview with News 12 senior investigative reporter Tara Rosenblum.
Mayor Mike Spano spoke with to News 12 late Thursday afternoon about his thoughts on staying at City Hall for another four years.
"I love being mayor and something I would strongly consider," he said.
Sources say that that Spano is expected to make a formal announcement after Election Day about his candidacy for another four-year term in office.
His anticipated decision comes on the heels of several prominent leaders across the city publicly urging him to stay in office, including the leader of the Mexican Chamber of Commerce - who sent a letter to the City Council president this week.
Spano needs the council's blessing since the current term-limits laws prevent him from running again.
In order for Spano to run, four out of the seven members of the City Council have to approve a change to the city charter that would increase the term limits for mayor from three to four terms.
