Businesswoman Susan Miller has announced her candidacy for the Chattanooga City Council District 1 seat.

District 1 encompasses Lookout Valley, Moccasin Bend, Mountain Creek and portions of Hixson and North Chattanooga.

Incumbent Chip Henderson has announced a re-election bid for the seat and businessman Jay Nevans has picked up papers to qualify for candidacy.

"If we work together to make use of all of the city's resources, we can address the challenges of high crime, affordable housing, and nationally competitive education," Miller said. "Over the course of my career I have led successful projects and collaborated with people from all types of backgrounds to solve business problems. I believe this experience will enable me to work across district and organizational boundaries to find creative solutions to the education, safety and housing challenges our city faces."
