Brown’s in: Mayor seeks 2nd Council term

Charlottesville Mayor David Brown will announce his plans to seek reelection to City Council tomorrow at 10am in front of City Hall.

The Democrat was elected to office four years ago with fellow newcomer Kendra Hamilton and veteran Kevin Lynch, neither of whom will run in November. Brown broke tradition by taking the mayoral mantle as a freshman councilor, and then again by taking an unprecedented–- at least since the days of Frank Buck–- second two-year term as mayor.

Also aspiring to the three open City Council seats are former planning chief Satyendra Huja, attorney Jennifer McKeever, nurse/activist Holly Edwards, and former city School Board chair Linda Seaman. All seek the Democratic nomination, which will be decided at the mass meeting on Saturday, June 2.
