Citing the need to “put…family first,” three term Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero is dropping out the 2017 mayor’s race.

In a statement on Facebook, Bernero referred to years of support he’s received from his wife and two daughters as well as responsibilities involving care of his elderly father.

91-year old Giulio Bernero lives with the mayor and his family.

Bernero says he “cannot do justice” to the city and his family during a 7-month campaign.

After office, he referred to beginning “a new chapter.”
