Former Alexandria Vice Mayor Andrew Macdonald 

plans to run for mayor this year.


He made the announcement Friday morning on the "Politics Hour" on WAMU radio.

News 4's Tom Sherwood asked him whether he would run after he hinted at it during the show.

"I'm willing to say it here today," Macdonald said.  "I will be, I'm going to challenge Mayor Bill Euille in the upcoming November race."

Macdonald resigned from the Democratic party this week.  He said he will run as an independent to fight what he calls "unrestricted" development on the cities waterfront.
