Alan Nakanishi.JPGFresh off his failed Board of Equalization bid, former GOP Assemblyman Alan Nakanishi is launching another campaign for elected office.

The 70-year-old ophthalmologist is planning a run for a seat on the Lodi City Council.

"I am going to run. I've lived in Lodi for 40 years and care about the community, ... the schools, parks, and safety," he told the Stockton Record.

Nakanishi served on the city council before being elected to the 10th Assembly District in 2002. He lost a four-way primary in June for the Republican nomination for the Board of Equalization District 2 seat to state Sen. George Runner.
