Weston Wamp announced Friday he is running for Hamilton County mayor.

In a video shared to YouTube, the former Congressional candidate and founder of the Millenial Debt Foundation said he is excited about writing the "next great chapter" in Hamilton County's history.

"As a father of four young children, the future of Hamilton County is on my mind and heart every day," Wamp said. "With the retirement of Mayor Jim Coppinger after three terms of outstanding public service, we have the opportunity and the responsibility to write the next great chapter of the 202-year history of our county. A conservative approach to government has served Hamilton County well for decades, paving the way for our region's dynamic economy and high quality of life. It's on us to protect and build on that legacy."
