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.
