Mysaline.com creator and blogger Shelli Russell has announced she is seeking a position on the Bryant City Council this November. She will vie for the Ward 3, Position 1 seat currently held by Adrian Henley.
Russell said her main goal is to bring the people on the council together.
"There's been a lot of controversy lately," she said.

Earlier this year, Henley and two other aldermen filed a lawsuit against six unnamed bloggers who use Russell's website, mysaline.com. The aldermen say the bloggers have defamed them.
