Chris Anderson has announced he will seek re-election to the Chattanooga City Council District 7 seat.

District 7 includes Alton Park, Downtown, East Lake and St. Elmo.

Challengers Manny Rico and Erskine Oglesby Jr. have qualified to run for the seat. Montrell Besley and Donald O'Connor have picked up papers to qualify as candidates.

"I ran for election four years ago to improve the conditions in District 7.," Anderson said. "We have made great strides and progress but there is still much work to do. Now is the time to continue moving forward, not backward to failed leadership and old policies that didn't work."

Anderson, who serves as the chairman of the council's Economic and Community Development Committee, has represented District 7 since 2013.
