Crist, 45, of 906 Maryland Ave., said he has lived in Hagerstown for about 10 years and decided to run because he believes the current council fails to follow through on good ideas.

"I believe the City of Hagerstown needs (council members) with vision and fortitude to make that happen," Crist said.

If elected, Crist said he wants to continue developing downtown by finding investors to rehabilitate abandoned buildings. He said he also wants to promote growth in other areas of the city.

To make that happen, the city has to form a positive relationship with residents and business professionals, Crist said.

"The city can't do everything on its own," he said.

Crist said he also wants to see the city do more to help poor families get back on their feet.

Crist is vice president of marketing for Crist Instrument Co., a business that has produced medical research equipment in Hagerstown since 1999.
