PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) - Former Portland Mayor Sam Adams has filed paperwork to run for a place on the City Council.

The Portland City Elections Office confirmed Wednesday that Adams filed paperwork to run for Position 4 on the council. That position is currently held by Commissioner Chloe Eudaly, who won the election over incumbent Steve Novick in November 2016.

Adams was previously a city commissioner, before he was elected mayor in May 2008. Adams announced in July 2011 that he would not seek a second term in office as mayor.

Charlie Hales followed Adams as mayor in November 2012. Current Mayor Ted Wheeler was elected in May 2016.
