Will Culver to run for re-election for Huntsville’s District 5 seat
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Will Culver confirmed today he is running for re-election to represent Huntsville’s District 5 on the City Council.
District 5 covers west Huntsville. Culver said the main reason he wants another term is projects he wants to see completed.
“There are a lot of things that I want to see through to fruition,” said Culver. “One of those things being MidCity — MidCity is a several hundred million dollar project where we will bring in an additional 540,000 square feet.
Culver has served on the Huntsville City Council for eight years. His campaign describes Culver as a quiet force, encouraging economic and infrastructure development with proven results.
“When we look at economic development I’m so thankful that I was on the ground level of getting Polaris here that will employ some 2,000 people, as well as Remington that will employ equally 2,000,” said Culver. “GE Aviation which will employ about 400 people. Verizon Wireless which brought 400 additional jobs. Those are some of the things that we’ve done, and we have a lot of other things we are continuing to work on.”
Culver will have opposition. Huntsville businessman John Meredith confirmed to WHNT News 19 on Tuesday he will also seek the District 5 seat.
