She would be seeking the seat currently held by Representative Carol Fullerton, who intends to run for re-election for District 153.

Edwards says she'd like to take her political influence to another level.

"And I'd like to see laws and rules that are enforceable and I'm ready, this community has prepared me for it," says Edwards.

She has not announced a date for an official announcement.
