Biskupski says she's busy getting her ducks in a row both personally and financially.
"Some of that has to do with work and home, and some is talking to the heavy hitters in our community," she says. "These are people who have a sincere desire for change in our community. If these people get behind me, that gives my candidacy credibility."
"I wouldn't be in it if the data said to me everyone was content and ready to roll for another four years. Honestly, there are so many things that I can see our city needs. We have a need for long-term financial security. There are things that are not being brought to the table that are of great interest to the business community, and there's a push for someone else to jump in."
Biskupski says even though an official announcement will come sometime in January, she may file official papers before then so she can start raising money.
"I've been looking at this for seven years. This is not some fly-by-night effort. I'm finally at a place where I can and want to take this on."
