Archibald said he has spent the last seven years making the city progressive and "a city of choice" and wants to continue working to move things forward for another three years.
Hippely made her final decision to run for mayor at the last minute, filing just before the deadline, but said her decision was not made in haste, and that she felt the incumbent needed to be challenged.
Archibald announced his intentions to run for reelection in January. He is a Vice President at Hendrick Hospital. He and his wife, Nancy, have two children.
