COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A Columbus City Council hopeful has announced her candidacy.

Regina Liparoto will run for the District 9  seat.

She made the announcement Thursday during a press conference at the City Services Center.

Liparoto is a former local radio and television personality who moved to Columbus when she was a baby.

She says she wants to better fund law enforcement agencies, increase neighborhood watch programs, and eliminate gangs in Columbus.

"I love this community, spirit, and enthusiasm. I am really concerned that we are going to get labeled and that people are not going to want to be here," says Liparoto.
