Waddell, a Democrat, announced her intentions to campaign for the District 40 seat now held by Malcolm Graham in an email to supporters on Wednesday asking for volunteers and monetary contributions. Graham is one of six Democrats running for the vacant U.S. House of Representatives seat formerly held by Mel Watt, who resigned in January to become director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency.

Waddell joins former Charlotte City Council member Nasif Majeed in the Senate race.

First elected to the CMS board in 2009, Waddell is chair of its Audit Committee and a member of the Intergovernmental Relationships Committee. A former CMS teacher and school administrator, Waddell has served on more than 15 community boards and organizations, many education-related.
