At least one Topeka City Council district will have a primary election.

Tim Lloyd filed Monday for the 1st district seat.

The 50-year old works for the Jayhawk Area Agency on Aging. He says he is running because he believes in the potential of the city of Topeka. Lloyd says the city needs to get away from its current method of doing things and restore its integrity. He says people and businesses need to feel they can get involved and not feel alienated.

Lloyd grew up in New Jersey, but moved to Kansas in the late 70s. He has a degree in horticultural therapy. He is married with two sons, a step-daughter and two grandchildren.

Lloyd is the fourth candidate to file for the seat. He'll face Shawn Leisinger, Karen Hiller and David Brown in a March 3 primary. The top three vote-getters move on to the April general election.

Incumbent Lana Kennedy hasn't announced her intentions.
