Julie Jenkins will take another shot at City Council



South Tampa mom, travel consultant and environmental activist Julie Jenkins says she'll run for the District 4 City Council seat in March 2011. That's the seat now held by John Dingfelder, who's running for county commission. Jenkins made her first run for public office in 2007 when she made a bid for the District 1 city wide seat. Gwen Miller won that race in a run-off against Joe Redner.

Jenkins has been involved in the south Tampa Democratic club and recently worked behind the scenes to stop construction of cell phone towers on public schools. So far, only Republican Tony DeSisto, a law student, has filed for the race.
