Michael Harris announced yesterday that he will be challenging incumbent Ward D Waynesboro City Councilwoman Lorie Smith in the May 2010 city elections.

Harris, 62, made the announcement in front of a group of supporters in the Waynesboro City Council chambers Wednesday morning.

The announcement was covered in the News Virginian and News Leader Thursday-morning editions.

The Augusta Free Press was not made aware of the announcement event.

Harris is a Staunton native and retired Virginia state trooper who has lived in Waynesboro since 2004, according to the local-newspaper reports.

Smith is finishing her first term on City Council. She was elected in 2006 after serving a term on the Waynesboro School Board that included a stint as that board’s chair.
