Fred Brown, who was a member of the Urban County Council from 1994-2004, has announced that he will run for the 8th District council seat. During his 11 years on council, Brown chaired two of four standing committees.
Brown, a partner in the CPA firm of Brown & Dougherty, is seeking the seat that is held by George Myers. Myers has announced that he will run for the state House of Representatives rather than run for council.
Brown said he plans to file with the Fayette County Clerk this week.
