      GREEN BAY - Green Bay mayor Jim Schmitt announced Monday that he will be taking steps to run for re-election next year.

      Schmitt said he'd make a final and formal announcement later this year, but with the primary coming up in February, he wanted to get a jump start on preparing for a re-election.

      Schmitt was first elected mayor of Green Bay in 2003.

      He cited downtown redevelopment, holding down property taxes and job growth as highlights in his current term in office.
