City Council President Lovely Warren may soon be vying for a more powerful office.

Warren says she is considering a run for the mayor's office. Rochester's current mayor, Tom Richards, has claimed that he is not seeking re-election.

Warren says that Mayor Richards has done a great job getting the city back on track fiscally, but she's hoping to move the city forward. She says she's still weighing her options and ultimately the community will help her make a decision.

Warren said, "I think that I am ready for the challenge, I don't have a question about that. Would I be prepared for it? Absolutely. It's just rather if the community is ready for us to really take this community into the future and do some things a little bit differently."

Warren has served on the City Council since 2007.
