Porterdale Councilwoman Linda Finger has announced that she will seek re-election to the council.

Finger has served as the Post 2 representative since her election in 2007. She said Wednesday that she is pleased with the programs that are under way in the community and that she wants to continue to help guide the city.

"I feel that Porterdale is going in a good direction," she said.

In a release announcing her campaign, Finger said that she has been "Working toward a future that will encompass progress while honoring the past history of the mill village."

She contends in the release that the city should not raise rates during tough economic times, and notes that she has voted against any increase in millage or water and sewer fees.

Finger is the founder of Community Assistance Relief Effort, which helps the needy in paying for such necessities as utilities or providing coats for children. C.A.R.E. also sponsored a community holiday dinner and is currently helping those in need with painting and minor repairs, according to the release.

The Tennessee native has lived in Porterdale 15 years. She lived 11 years in Covington. She's a mother of three and a grandmother of four children, and has a cleaning business that she operates from her home.
