A challenger says he will seek election to the Duluth City Council in 2013.
Kirkland Carden, a graduate of Duluth High, told Patch on Monday that he plans to seek the Post 2 spot currently held by Jim Dugan.
"The city of Duluth has proven to be a city that can attract and retain major corporations and businesses without sacrificing its character. I am running because I am committed to the city’s economic development while preserving the characteristics that set Duluth apart from other metro Atlanta communities," Carden said in the email.
Carden's Facebook page notes that he has served on the Duluth Urban Redevelopment Authority and the city Zoning Board of Appeals.
