Charlottesville Lawyer Jennifer McKeever thinks she is the woman to replace city Councilor Kendra Hamilton.

Tuesday morning, McKeever officially announced her bid for the Democratic nomination to run for Charlottesville City Council.

McKeever says her experience as a business owner, mother, and public servant give her an inside look at the issues affecting residents.

She says she'll improve Charlottesville by improving the areas of affordable housing, transportation, and education. She vows to do this by bringing non-profit organizations, businesses, and government together.

"In order for Charlottesville to be the number one place to live in America, and for it to remain a world class city, all its residents must have the opportunities to thrive," said McKeever.

The Democratic Caucus will be on June 2nd.

The City Council election will be held for the first time in November, instead of May.
