"The debt service in 2018 goes from roughly $22 million a year to $42 million a year, almost doubling, and that's 20 percent of the total revenue for this city,” Harris said. “We're going to have get inside of the numbers and work to figure out a way to handle that type of payment that's coming."

Mayor Strange has qualified for the race. Artur Davis and Buena Browder have applied. Ella Bell has not submitted the needed papers as of yet.
