COLUMBUS, Ind. — Four more Democrats have filed for 2023 city elections.

Incumbent Councilman Jerone Wood, who currently represents District 1, has filed to run for Columbus City Council’s District 3 seat due to new district maps.

Michael Kinder has also joined the District 3 race.

Incumbent Councilman-at-large Tom Dell has filed for re-election.
