CHATTANOOGA, TN. (Times Free Press) -- Three neighborhood leaders close to City Councilman Andraé McGary say he's likely to announce he's running for re-election in District 8.

"I think he will, and I hope he does," Riverside Area Community Club President Odessa Greene said. "From our conversation, it seemed like he's already in."

A re-election campaign would surprise those who watched McGary say his council tenure was over when he announced a Democratic bid for state Senate. But he lost that race to Republican Todd Gardenhire, and community leaders say he's reconsidering the finality of quitting City Hall.

"I really believe he will run," Westside Community Association President Joyce Hardwick said. "His heart's in it. That's what I thought after [we talked]."
