CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (NEWSPLEX) -- A Charlottesville resident has thrown her name in the hat in the race for a seat on the Charlottesville City Council.

Heather Hill officially launched her campaign at the Jefferson Madison Regional Library on Tuesday afternoon.

She's a married, mother of three and currently serves as President of the North Downtown Residents Association.

Hill is running as a Democrat with a campaign platform of "Listen, Engage, Act".

"It's really to listen to voices throughout the community and understand the issues that people are facing in all corners of the city," said Hill. "And engage is for us to work within our community to engage the right resources to solve those problems so we can move forward and act on those."

There are two seats up for grabs on city council, those of Kristin Szakos and Bob Fenwick.

Szakos already announced she will not seek a third term, however Fenwick has not formally made a decision on whether he'll run for another term.

Primary Elections will take place in June and the General Election is scheduled for Nov. 7.
