Cincinnati City Council Member Chris Bortz will seek another term on council, his last before being term-limited.
The Charter Committee endorsed candidate had been on the fence about running, but has publicly made his decision to run.
Bortz has strong backing and likely will do well in the election. He puts a dent into the chance of adding new faces to City Council. All current officer holders are running, so no open seats are up for grabs, but three current officer holders are unelected appointees and will face stiff challenge from several candidates.
