SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — A Scottsdale city councilman says he will run for the state House of Representatives this year.
The Arizona Republic reports Councilman Bob Littlefield plans to formally announce his candidacy Monday for a House seat in Legislative District 23.
That district includes most of Scottsdale, Fountain Hills and areas northeast of Phoenix.
Littlefield is in his third term and Scottsdale limits councilmembers from serving more than three terms.
Littlefield says has a record of fiscal responsibility.
Records show Littlefield raised more than $5,600 for his campaign as of Dec. 31.
Littlefield is also a commercial pilot and flight instructor.
State Reps. John Kavanagh and Michelle Ugenti, both Republicans, currently represent District 23.
While Ugenti plans to run again, Kavanagh is seeking a state Senate seat in the same district.
