Edwards announces Metro Council re-election bid
Metro Councilwoman Ronnie Edwards says she's running for re-election to a second term as representative of District 5. "I look forward to continuing to work with the community to pursue greater improvements in infrastructure and neighborhood revitalization, basic services and smart growth initiatives, economic and small business development," Edwards says in a prepared statement. Edwards says she has established a track record of achieving "major accomplishments" during her first term, including "a 125% increase in civic participation, over $150 million invested in new housing construction, $187 million in dedicated street, bridge, sewer improvements and infrastructure repairs." She also says progress has been made on blight removal in her district and points to two newly constructed elementary schools as evidence of it. Thus far, no candidates have announced a challenge to Edwards for the seat. Qualifying ends Friday.
