He submitted his resume and a video to the Council on Monday. While a dozen or so wannabes have announced their interest in the Ellicott District seat, Pridgen's entry into the race is a head turner.

Pridgen and the other candidates will run a gantlet over the next several weeks.
First up are interviews with Democratic committeemen in the Ellicott District, which should happen in the next week or two. That will be followed shortly thereafter by a vote of committeemen, which will be forwarded to the Council, which has the final say.
The Council also will vet candidates, with interviews in the middle of the month and a decision expected by the end of December or early January.
