A community activist is all but running for Erie County Legislature.

Duncan Kirkwood tells 7 Eyewitness News that he has established a campaign committee and registered it with the New York State Board of Elections.

Kirkwood says Betty Jean Grant’s announcement to run for mayor of Buffalo gives him an extra push to consider that this is something he should do.

Kirkwood plans to meet with community members, advisors, friends and family on Saturday to get feedback about his potential run.

If elected, he says he has the support of his current employers and that if he does win, he may just take a lesser role to devote more time to the district.
