LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville developer Gill Holland is looking to replace Kelly Downard on the city's Metro Council. 

Holland launched HollandForLouisville.com Thursday, announcing his run for the district 16 seat.

"I’m running for Metro Council because I want to bring a spirit of non-partisan collaboration and a record of transformative results to city government," reads a statement on the website. "With the support of my neighbors, I want to make District 16 a leading voice for a better Louisville."

Holland is a businessman and developer who helped develop much of the NuLu area over the past few years. 

He is looking to replace Kelly Downard -- who will not be seeking re-election -- in district 16, which covers northeast Jefferson County along the Ohio River.
