First Candidate files for 7th District City Council Seat

Councilman Bill Cegelka has set his sights on higher office this election cycle. He is leaving the 7th District seat open in his bid for the County Attorney's Office. Rumors are flying about who might be running as his replacement. So far only one candidate has come forward. Twenty-four-year-old candidate, Justin Dobbs, is the first to throw his hat into the ring for our 7th District City Council Seat.

As far as I have been able to determine, Justin Dobbs is making his first run at public office. However, the political newcomer seems to have considered a political career early. In high school he was elected president of the school's Young Democrats Club. He also spent several months in 2003-2004 working on Congressman Ben Chandler's campaign.

We will see who steps up next. There are other names being batted around, but none will be posted until the candidate has offically filed for the position.
