Tim Lecklider plans to seek re-election to a fifth term on Dublin City Council.

He made his intent known at a May 8 council meeting, in which he shared the satisfaction he got from council service.

Lecklider said he's most excited about the development of the Bridge Street District, the West Innovation District and the expansion of the Ohio University branch campus.

Lecklider was first elected to council in 2002. He served four terms on council, which included two two-year terms as vice mayor and two two-year terms as mayor from 2010 to 2013.

He represents Ward 4, which is bordered by Brand Road to the north, Coffman Road to the east, Post Road and Tara Hill Drive to the south and Hyland-Croy Road to the west.

Prior to being elected to council, Lecklider served as a member of Dublin's Board of Zoning Appeals and spent five years on the City Planning and Zoning Commission.

Lecklider serves as an attorney in the civil division of the Franklin County Prosecutor's office.

Other council members whose terms expire this year include Mayor Greg Peterson, Vice Mayor John Reiner and Amy Salay. The filing deadline for council candidates is Aug. 9. The general election will be held Nov. 7.
