Former Charleston City Councilman Kwadjo Campbell, who spent several years sparring with Mayor Joe Riley on Charleston City Council looks to be heading just a little farther up the peninsula for his next political campaign.

Campbell, who left the Lowcountry after an indictment on campaign finance charges five years ago, is launching a campaign to unseat North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey in 2011.

Over the weekend Kwadjo Campbell for Mayor posted a notice on Facebook that it was looking for supporters to hit the trail. Campbell told the City Paper he’ll have no official statement on the campaign until next summer. North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey has served since 1994.
