Former Boy-Band Member To Run For Mayor

Former boy- band member plans to run for mayor of Cincinnati

A former member of the 98 Degrees boy-band wants to be the next mayor of Cincinnati. Thirty-two-year-old Justin Jeffre plans to announce his candidacy for Cincinnati mayor at a new conference today in Cincinnati.

The Cincinnati native has been discussing his mayoral ambitions for some time and wants cable TV's VH-1 to follow his campaign for a new reality series. Jeffre says he is very serious about running for the office and intends to win. The musician says he wants to bring the city's residents together through Cincinnati's arts and entertainment venues and build a strong downtown. Jeffre says he is not a politician and does not plan any commercials. He says he wants to have the most fun, innovative grass-roots campaign possible.

VH-1 officials say they have made no decision on Jeffre's proposal for a reality series.
