CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Local businessman Ken Lanci announced his candidacy for the mayor of Cleveland this afternoon.

"The present state of the people of Cleveland is unacceptable to me," Lanci said Monday afternoon.

Lanci ran three years ago as an Independent for Cuyahoga County Executive, but lost to Ed FitzGerald.

Current Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson has been in office since 2006.

Mayor Jackson sat down with Harry Boomer on the WUAB Forum, which will air this coming Sunday. He talked about Lanci's announcement.

Boomer asked Jackson, "Is there anything sticking out there that you feel you're vulnerable on that he might be able to take advantage of?"

The Mayor responded, "You'd be better off asking him that.  But we will run a race."
