— Durham Mayor Bill Bell wants an unprecedented fourth term in office.

Bell announced Tuesday that he plans to seek re-election. The mayor said he wants to expand revitalization in the inner city neighbors.

Thomas Stith, a two-term member of the Durham City Council, is also running for the office. Stith ran for lieutenant governor in 2004.
