Kenneth B. Hood says he has the people skills needed to be a good councilman.
The Lancaster native is seeking the City Council District 1 seat that opened after the death of longtime Councilman Preston Blackmon in August. Blackmon, who was 82, held the seat for more than 30 years.
Hood said he decided to run before Blackmon died. However, he thought this moment wouldn't come until 2010, when Blackmon's term would expire.
Hood will face Blackmon's son, Racarda Blackmon, in the Nov. 4 election. The winner will serve the two remaining years in Preston Blackmon's term.
