Former County Commissioner Chris Hart to run for Tampa City Council

TAMPA — On the last day of qualifying, former Hillsborough County Commissioner Chris Hart Friday jumped into the race for Tampa City Council's citywide District 3 seat.

Hart, a county commissioner from 1994 to 2002 and a candidate for Clerk of the Circuit Court in 2004, said he was running because he wants to help "to put people to work."

Hart joins a field of candidates that includes current City Council member Yvonne Yolie Capin, family law attorney Seth Nelson, emergency room physician Jason W. Wilson and green business consultant Michael Ciftci.
