Berkeley resident Fred Dodsworth filed his intent to run for the District 6 council seat Monday.
Councilmember Susan Wengraf has occupied the seat since 2008, and was reelected for a second term in 2012. Wengraf has yet to express whether or not she is running for the seat in November.
Dodsworth has participated in various city movements, including work on landlord-tenant relations, most recently sitting on a steering committee that organized a convention to choose candidates for a pro-tenant slate for the Rent Stabilization Board elections in 2014.
Municipal elections will be held Nov. 8, 2016, when city residents will be voting on candidates for four council seats, as well as the mayoral seat that will be left vacant by current Mayor Tom Bates.
