Flowers has filed to run for the District 7 seat formerly held by Lew Williams. Williams died in December. Flowers actually managed Williams' successful campaign for the seat in 2010.

Glen Gilzean, who was appointed to fill Williams' spot last month, said Wednesday he has not yet decided whether he will run for the position.
