Briefly: Morehead to run again for Ward 22 seat

Ward 22 Alderman Greg Morehead will run for a third term in his seat this November, he confirmed to the News on Wednesday. Morehead, who first came to office in a special election in 2007, stated last week that he was undecided about whether he would run again. But Wednesday, he said he has known privately for several months that he will seek another term. “I’m really doing it because of my constituents,” Morehead said. “I can’t let them down by stepping down, and there’s more work to be done.” Ward 22 Democratic Committee Co-Chair Cordelia Thorpe also confirmed that she will run for the seat, though she said she is currently considering running as an Independent. No other Ward 22 resident has yet announced plans to enter the race.
