Chattanooga Councilwoman Carol Berz announced today she will not be candidate for chairwoman when the new body gets organized April 16.

Berz said in a news release she plans to stay on as chairwoman of the budget and finance committee and will not focus her efforts elsewhere.

"With the transition between the Littlefield and Berke administrations, I believe it's critical to have someone guiding the budget process with an institutional knowledge," she said in a press release.

Berz has served as chairwoman of the budget and finance committee for the last three years. A new council is set t be sworn in April 15.
