Posted by Ellen Krafve - email

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Former Tyler mayor Joey Seeber says he's getting back into politics. Seeber announced his intent to run for State Representative District 6 in the upcoming 20-10 election. Seeber served three terms as mayor of Tyler. Leo Berman currently represents District 6. Last week, Berman told KLTV 7 of his intent to run for governor.

"It appears we have a vacancy in the office of the state rep, and the fact is I'd love to take my experience as mayor of cutting taxes and getting results to Austin," said Seeber. "I think we need a state representative in Austin that represents the people of Smith County and their conservative values and who expects to get results down there."

Seeber says he will make a formal campaign announcement later this year.
