The owner of a Rosewood Drive restaurant has announced his candidacy for a city seat on Richland County Council.
Moe Baddourah, 47, becomes the third man to announce for District 5 since Councilwoman Kit Smith announced she's retiring after nearly 20 years of service.
Baddourah will be running in the Democratic primary June 8.
Previously announced candidates in that primary are Seth Rose, a prosecutor, and Scott Wingate, a lawyer in general practice.
All three live in Shandon.
