Bellevue City Councilwoman Carol Blood wants to represent her community at the state-level. Sunday night, she announced her candidacy for the District 3 unicameral seat.

The seat is currently vacant. State Senator Scott Price stepped down after taking a job in Alabama.

Governor Dave Heineman will appoint a replacement. Blood says she will submit her name for consideration, but will run in 2014 regardless of the outcome.

“I will be a voice for this district’s priorities, including safer neighborhoods, stronger schools, and sustaining a robust business community," says Blood.

She says she was encouraged by area business leaders and community members to serve as a state senator.

The district includes western Bellevue and some of Sarpy County.

In addition to her seat on the City Council, Blood works at Nebraska Self Employment Services. She is a mother of three, and grandmother to six.
