Bloomington City Council member Andy Ruff announced yesterday he will run for Congress in Indiana’s Ninth District.

Ruff has served five terms as a Democratic at-large representative.

"I'm running because we need to do a much better job of reflecting the real needs of the people of our district,” Ruff said in a press release. 

Ruff said he will develop policies geared toward populations such as veterans and farmers. In the next month Ruff plans to attend meetings and events in the district and create a website, according to the release.
