TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Tallahassee city commissioner Gil Ziffer is now officially in the race to run for mayor. 

The commissioner filed his paperwork to run Wednesday morning at the Supervisor of Elections Office.

"I want to run a different kind of campaign," Ziffer said while on the phone with WTXL. "One that focuses on solving problems... and not big giant press campaigns."

Ziffer is not the only candidate to announce his bid for Tallahassee mayor.

Erik David and Robert Lotane have already filed their paperwork for the position according to the Leon County Supervisor of Elections website

The Supervisor of Elections office says that Ziffer has not filed the official paperwork as of Tuesday. 

In August 2009, Ziffer was selected to serve the balance of the term of the Tallahassee City Commission seat 5, and in August 2010, he was elected to a four-year term and re-elected in 2014.

In addition to his City Commission positions, Commissioner Ziffer is also the President of the Florida League of Cities, according to his bio on the City of Tallahassee website.
