Dan Parker will not run for Mayor of Indianapolis next year. The former state Democratic Chairman has been considering a bid for months.
In a statement announcing his decision Parker cited the recent violent crime as a reason to remain in private life. He says the next mayor needs a background in public safety and he has none.
That leaves Frank Short as the only Democrat in the field. State Representative Ed DeLaney is expected to join him.
