A Novato City Council member hopes to represent Del Norte County and the North Coast in the State Senate.

Eric Lucan announced this week that he will run as a Democrat in the 2014 election for Senate District 2, which stretches along the California coast from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Oregon border.

District 2 is currently represented by Noreen Evans, D-Santa Rosa, who has said she will not seek re-election.

Del Norte, which is currently part of Senate District 4, will be represented by Jim Nielsen, R-Gerber, until 2014 when it becomes part of the District 2 due to redistricting.

Lucan was born and raised in Novato and has an MBA from Georgia State University. For more information about Lucan, visit
