Terre Haute City Councilman Karrum Nasser announced he’s running for the Democratic nomination for mayor in next year’s primary.

Nasser made a formal announcement Wednesday afternoon. He says Terre Haute needs a new voice, new vision, and a fresh start.

“I’ve always been dumbfounded that our leadership struggles to admit faults, be afraid to ask for help," Nasser says. "I think that’s very humble coming from our leadership because everyone is human.”

Nasser is serving his first term as Councilman of District 3. He also served one year as the City Council President.

Terre Haute businessman Pat Goodwin announced his bid for mayor in January. He won’t seek a political party nomination.

Republican Mayor Duke Bennett says he’ll make an announcement soon on whether he’ll run for reelection.

Bennett won his third term for mayor by just more than 300 votes in 2015.
