Another candidate has entered the race for a seat on the Dunwoody City Council.

Lynn Deutsch, a member of the Dunwoody Planning Commission, qualified to run for the Post 5 seat Sept. 1.

She will face Kerry de Vallette for the position. The seat is currently held by Councilman Danny Ross, who has said he will not run for reelection.

No one filed to run for mayor or city council on Aug. 30 and Aug. 31. But on Aug. 29, the first day of the qualifying period, six people filed with city clerk.

Bob Dallas and Mike Davis filed to run for mayor. Terry Nall filed to run for Post 4, the at-large City Council seat from District 1. The seat is held by Councilman Robert Wittenstein, who filed to run for reelection.

Kerry de Vallette qualified to fill the at-large Post 5 position and City Councilman John Heneghan qualified to run for another term in his Post 6 seat.
The qualifying period lasts through Sept. 2.
