NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) — Longtime council member and former vice mayor Tina Vick is running for Newport News mayor.

She made the announcement Thursday night at 5 p.m. at Newport News Marriott at City Center.

Vick, a Newport News native and VCU alumna, has served on city council since 2012 and was vice mayor for several years.

Current Mayor McKinley Price, who’s held the post since 2010, isn’t seeking re-election for a fourth term. He’s the only mayor out of the seven cities whose term is up in 2022. Price told WAVY back in 2018 that “12 years is enough.”

He will serve an extra six months than what he originally thought, due to a new state law moving local elections from May to November.
