ODESSA - Odessa mayor Larry Melton announced his run for re-election at a press conference on Monday.

Melton has been the Mayor of Odessa since 2001.

He says he is excited about having another four years to keep Odessa moving in a good direction.

"I don't think were going to do anything different then we do in the past, we've been very successful.  We have a great team in place, we have a great management corp. in place.  The City is doing extremely well in all areas and we just need to continue what we started and continue to make this City move forward," Odessa Mayor Larry Melton said.

Melton will be running against Art Leal who announced his candidacy early last week.
