College Student the Eighth to Announce Council Candidacy

May 29, 2011

The pool of city council candidates continues to grow, as the eighth person expressing interest in one of three open seats announces his intention to run.

Andrew Williams, an insurance claims adjuster and Averett University student said his emphasis this election is on sustainability and creating jobs. Williams, an independent, sees Charlottesville residents as customers of government, and he said he wants to make sure they get what they need from council.

"I want to essentially be a liaison between Charlottesville residents and the government figuring out how can we make ways to provide better dividends or more dividends to our main shareholder, our Charlottesville residents," Williams said.

Williams unsuccessfully ran for a council seat in 2009 as a write-in candidate.
