Hotel developer Doug Gamble has unofficially entered the race for city council. Gamble is running for the 4th District-at-large seat and says his filing should become official today. At the forum on Sunday for 4th district candidates held by Country Club District neighborhoods at the former Southwest High School, Gamble said he is “the small business candidate”. Gamble asserted that there were no business-minded people currently on the council and that he wanted to provide that perspective. His campaign website is www.gamble2007.com.
Gamble said he entered the race late because of a “conflict of interest” pending a hotel deal with the city. That deal has been resolved said Gamble.
