COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

A Columbia businessman has opened up a campaign in hopes of unseating City Councilwoman Leona Plaugh.

In a news release sent out Monday morning, Todd Walter says he has declared his candidacy for the District Four race.

Walter, a real estate developer and former instructor at the University of South Carolina, says he "understands the needs, the values, and the concerns of his fellow neighbors."

Plaugh took over the District Four seat back in 2010 when Mayor Steve Benjamin also took office.

Voters will head to the polls to decide who will represent them in the Mayor's Office, the At-Large seat, and Districts One and Four on Nov. 5.
