The race for an at-large seat on Charlottesville City Council continues to expand.

On Wednesday, Charlottesville School Board member Kathy Galvin announced she will enter the race. She has served on the school board for four years and now says she's ready to share her insight with a broader group.

The Democrat is calling for a more efficient City Council. An architect, Galvin says it's time to finish projects that are taking too much time away from other issues.

"I think we need to step back and serve a visionary role, which is the intention behind being an elected official. By being visionary, we can become extremely intentional about where we want to put our investments," she explained.

Galvin is the sixth candidate to enter the race. She joins James Halfaday (D), Bob Fenwick (I), Scott Bandy (I), Brandon Collins (I) and incumbent Satyendra Huja (D).

Current councilors Holly Edwards and David Brown are not seeking re-election, which leaves three seats open.
