VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –Another candidate has announced plans to run for an at-large Valdosta City Council seat.

Ben Norton, a teacher at Valdosta Middle School is running for the seat being vacated by John Eunice. Norton's worked in the Valdosta City School system for 23 years.

He says he's a good problem solver and that will help him with issues like how to spend taxpayer money.

"Today in this economy we really have to watch every penny, like we do at home," said Norton. "I believe we have to do that for our city government and our taxpayers."

Two other candidates have also qualified to run John L. Eunice, the incumbent's father, and Valdosta State University student Keith Lee.

This special election is in November.
