The Cooper High graduate told KTXS why he would like to be on the city council.

"I feel like I can be most effective here within the community.  And there's a lot of issues, here in the city, that need to be addressed.  And, I really love Abilene a lot and want to do my best to make it a better place for everybody to live," Savage said.

Place 6 is currently represented by Kellie Miller. Miller has already filed to run.
