Huja plans City Council run
The man known as the "Urban Turban" who left an indelible mark on Charlottesville during his 31 years in city planning will announce his candidacy for City Council April 12. Satyendra Huja hopes to go from retired City employee to City Councilor in the November election.
When Huja came to Charlottesville in 1973, his first project was the Downtown Mall. He also had a hand in the flowers planted all over the city and Art in Place.
So far, among the two other candidates who've announced their Democratic intentions– attorney Jennifer McKeever and Belmont resident Holly Edwards, who also plans to announce April 12, Huja sports by far the most name recognition.
