Henri Martin leaps into City Council race

Well, the city's election season is beginning to heat up.
With two mayoral contenders -- Democrat Art Ward and independent Gary Lawton -- already in the ring and two declared council hopefuls, the political playing field is starting to fill up.
The latest entrant jumped in over the weekend.
Here's the story: 
A political newcomer with a long history of community service leaped into the contest for a City Council seat this weekend.

Henri Martin, a Republican, said that “to meet the challenges of the difficult economic situation we are going through requires new leadership on thecouncil and fresh ideas about how the city operates and is governed.”
Martin is seeking a seat in the 2nd District, currently represented by Democrat Kevin McCauley and Republican Ken Cockayne. Cockayne is seeking reelection. McCauley’s plans are uncertain.
Martin declared his candidacy Saturday night to a crowd of friends and family at the Franco-American Club.
