Former Journal North City Hall reporter Russell Simon filed papers today to run for Santa Fe Councilor Chris Calvert's District 1 seat.

Running is "something I've been thinking about for a while," Simon, 27, tells SFR. "This is my city; I want to make it better."

Simon left the Journal in 2007. He now works as a community manager for the family business, WestGate Properties, and under temporary contract for Repower New Mexico, the state outpost for Al Gore's "climate protection" campaign.

Simon, pictured, says a campaign website and platform will be rolled out in the next couple of weeks.
