GREENSBORO, N.C.  — Greensboro Councilman Zack Matheny announced Monday that he will run for Congress in North Carolina’s 6th District.

The announcement was made during a press conference at Koury Aviation in Greensboro.

He will join several candidates who will battle over the seat held by Rep. Howard Coble, a Republican who will retire at the end of this term.

Matheny, 40, represents District 3 on the Greensboro City Council.

Matheny is the fifth registered Republican to say he will run for the post.

Rockingham County District Attorney Phil Berger Jr., Jamestown-area pastor the Rev. Dan Collison, Lawndale Baptist Church associate pastor the Rev. Mark Walker, and High Point financial adviser Don Webb have said they will run on the Republican side.

So far, Laura Fjel is the only candidate on the Democratic side.

Primary elections will be held May 6 followed by the general election Nov. 4.

    He can’t run Greensboro how is he going to run the country?
    I belong to no party, but better a Republican than a Democrat.

    Both very good points FaithC and Kaye. :) I have not ruled out anyone else just yet but Matheny will not be getting my vote… unless he’s the least of the evils. :)
