Athens City Law Director Pat Lang is going to take a shot at Washington.
Lang announced on his facebook page today that he filed petitions this morning to run for Ohio's 15th congressional district.
The district is currently represented by Republican Steve Stivers.
Lang, a Democrat, has been law director since 2008.
"To change Washington, we must change the people we send there," says Lang. "This morning, I filed petitions to run for the United States Congress from Ohio's 15th District. I hope you will join me in this fight for the forgotten middle class."
Lang will appear tonight on WOUB Television's Newswatch to talk about the decision.
