CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Cedar Rapids Mayor Ron Corbett is running for re-election this fall.

Corbett says the city began a number of projects during his first term and he wants to see them through -- buildings like the convention center and hotel.

He believes some of the challenges ahead include building flood protection for both sides of the Cedar River and continuing to improve infrastructure problems.

"I've worked hard over the last four years and I hope people appreciate the hard work," said Corbett. "I know that not every decision we've made is supported by all the people but you can't please everybody and if you try you don't make a decision -- but I think people in general feel Cedar Rapids has made progress."

The election will be held in November. In 2009, Corbett received 62 percent of the vote.
