Park Board commissioner Hauser to run for city council

Park Board Commissioner Marie Hauser is throwing her hat in the ring for the 8th Ward City Council seat in the 2005 election, as is former 9th Ward City Council aide Jeffrey Hayden.

The 8th Ward has no incumbent due to redistricting. Robert Lilligren currently represents the ward, but the new boundaries put the Phillips resident in the new 6th Ward with fellow incumbent Dean Zimmermann.

The new 8th Ward is largely east of I-35W, but encompasses about 60 percent of Southwest’s Kingfield neighborhood.
