SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - John Hall is the latest to throw his hat into the ring for Savannah City Council. He made the announcement to run for the 3rd District Seat at his home on Tuesday evening. He says he is running to better represent the community.

"People are hurting in this disctrict. We need more response and faster response to derelict housing. We need to build this community and this is what I want to do," said John Hall.

Hall is currently employed by the Chatham County Board of Education as a para-educator and spent the last eight years as councilman for the Town of Thunderbolt.
