Smyrna councilwoman to run for State House

A special election was called by the Smyrna City Council for Nov. 7 to fill the Ward 3 post left vacant when Mayor Pro Tem and Councilwoman Teri Anulewicz resigned Sept. 6.

As a Democrat, Anulewicz has filed paperwork to run for the House District 42 post left vacant when Smyrna attorney and Democrat Stacey Evans resigned Sept. 5 to run for governor.
