(Harrisburg) -- A Dauphin County man who ran for mayor of Harrisburg a few years ago is set to announce his candidacy for the job again next month.
Nevin Mindlin says he'll run as an Independent for the post, and will focus on crime reduction, cutting down on blight, and improving the city's finances during his campaign.
Mindlin works as a public policy and community affairs consultant.
He ran as a Republican against current mayor Linda Thompson in 2009, losing the election by about 800 votes.
Other candidates for mayor include Democrats Eric Papenfuse, founder and CEO of the Midtown Scholar Bookstore, City Controller Dan Miller, Harrisburg resident Lewis Butts, Jr., and incumbent Linda Thompson.
