Local business owner and former Metro-Councilman, Smokie Bourgeois, announced he will run for Mayor President. 

Bourgeois made the announcement Saturday on Jefferson Highway near his childhood home.

"My parents' house was right up the street. I rode my bicycle all around and to downtown. That's why I know it's uphill all the way to downtown," said Bourgeois. "Today I'm officially doing it again. Riding uphill to get downtown to the Mayor-President's office."

The mayoral election is in November and the run-off will be in December.
