NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Actor Ben Savage, star of the former ABC sitcom ‘Boy Meets World,’ is running for city council in West Hollywood, Calif.

Previously reported by Gawker, Savage’s campaign has already filed documents with the city. The actor has a campaign website where he notes that he has lived in West Hollywood for 18 years.

“I’ve seen this city grow into one of the most successful cities in the country – with amazing restaurants, hotels, nightlife and culture,” a statement from Savage read on the homepage.

“In recent years, however, people have become disillusioned with the direction the city is headed. Residents and community leaders have expressed frustration over political division and the loss of a sense of community,” the statement added. “People are looking for leaders who can talk to each other, build coalitions, work together on common sense policies, and put the interests of the city and residents ahead of their own.”
