A familiar face to people of Charlottesville threw his name in the hat for city council Monday morning.
Retired Charlottesville Fire Chief, Julian Taliaferro, announced his plans to run for Charlottesville City Council at Belmont Park.
Taliaferro spent 34 years with the Charlottesville Fire Department, and several years in the United States Army.
Taliaferro will run as a democrat, and focus his platform on education.
"One of the things that I am interested in, [is] looking at children in the system who probably are not college material. I think we need to identify those children early on," said Julian Taliaferro, candidate for the Charlottesville City Council.
The election for Charlottesville City Council will be held on Tuesday, March 4.
