VANCOUVER, Wash. – Vancouver Mayor Tim Leavitt will announce Thursday he's running for re-election, he told KATU News Wednesday night.

"I'm geared up and ready to go," he said. "We had a fundraiser tonight and raised a good chunk of change."

He said the amount of money he raised will be disclosed Thursday.

Leavitt was elected in November 2009 after beating 14-year incumbent Royce Pollard.

Before being mayor, Leavitt was a city councilor.

His afternoon announcement will be at a downtown business in Vancouver.
