Szakos Announces She Will Run for Second Term as Councilor

Posted: Updated: Feb 14, 2013 03:56 PM EST

The race for a seat on Charlottesville's City Council is taking off.  Kristin Szakos announced her plans to run for a second term as a councilor.

She made the announcement Thursday at the Free Speech Wall on the downtown mall.

Szakos says her top three priorities include ensuring everyone has a voice in city government, working on education, housing and jobs and hearing from the youth in the community.

The incumbent says she's no shoe-in.

"I don't think you should take anything for granted and, actually, I think the beauty of our system of re-elections of elections is that it really makes sure we go back to the public and say, 'What do you think?  How am I doing? Is this something you want me to keep doing for another four years?'" said Szakos.

Szakos still needs signatures to be on the ballot this fall. Councilors serve four-year terms.
