John Lee of Brookline on Friday announced he will seek the Democratic nomination for the City Council seat now occupied by Natalia Rudiak.

Lee, 52, has worked for the U.S. Postal Service for 24 years and is a former physical education and history teacher. He would represent District 4, which covers Beechview, Bon Air, Brookline, Carrick and Overbrook.

“Our neighborhoods and business districts have been shortchanged over the past four years. It's going to take a team effort and working together to get the job done to have our communities live up to their full potential,” Lee said in a prepared statement.

Rudiak, 33, of Carrick said she's worked to bring plenty of investment to her district, citing the planned reconstruction of Brookline Boulevard and Route 88 this year as two examples.

“We're seeing more investment in our southern neighborhoods over the past four years than we have in the last four decades,” Rudiak said.

Lee is married with two sons. The primary election is May 21.
