KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Knoxville City Councilwoman Marilyn Roddy appointed a political treasurer Friday as she prepares to run for city mayor.

Roddy, a two term councilwoman, holds one of the at large seats. She's a member of council's audit and investment advisory committees.

Her biography on the city of Knoxville website says Roddy has been involved in the Knoxville community for over 20 years as a civic activist.

Roddy serves as chair of the Metropolitan Drug Commission Board of Directors and vice chair of the Legacy Parks Foundation.

She's also a graduate of Leadership Knoxville and has served as co-chair of the Residential Neighborhood Traffic Safety Committee.

Roddy's political treasurer is Sharon A. Bosse.

Roddy is a graduate of The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a degree in education.

She and her husband, Patrick Roddy, have three daughters.

Election officials say no one else has filed yet to run for mayor.

Bill Haslam, who's running for Tennessee governor, is finishing his second term as mayor of Knoxville.
