HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

A longtime mental health counselor in the Hub City has qualified to run as an independent for the Hattiesburg City Council in Ward 4. 

Mary Dryden submitted her qualifying papers at the city clerk's office Friday Morning. Dryden, a lifelong resident of Hattiesburg, has been a counselor in private practice for more than 20 years. This is her first time to run for public office.

Current Ward 4 councilman Dave Ware has not officially announced whether he will seek re-election.

"I'm just really excited about it," said Dryden. "I'm excited about Hattiesburg and the future of Hattiesburg and I look forward to working with the rest of the Council and the mayor and doing what we can to help Hattiesburg continue to move forward," she said. 

Dryden says she will begin campaigning door-to-door on Saturday.
