TUCSON, Ariz. -- A longtime Tucsonan threw his hat in the ring Tuesday morning for a seat on the city council.

Joe Flores announced he'll challenge incumbent, Regina Romero this November.

"I have taken this necessary step because i have a deep concern about the direction of our community and a deep commitment for a new vision for a better stronger and more vibrant community," said Flores.

The democrat grew up working in the pharmacy business with his father and has operated his own business for over 40 years.
