LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The daughter of a former Metro councilwoman wants to follow in her mother's footsteps.

Jessica Green has filed to run in District 1, the same district her mother, Dr. Judy Green, represented from 2007 until her resignation in September 2011.

Judy Green, a dentist, died in January 2013. During her time in office, Dr. Green made several headlines involving her community involvement and the political scandal surrounding her resignation.

Jessica Green said she is exited to run. She will be challenging Attica Scott, the current councilwoman, for the council seat.
