Levi Johnston’s manager, Tank Jones, is confirming a report that Johnston is planning to run for city office in his hometown of Wasilla, Alaska, as part of a reality TV show.

Wasilla is where Sarah Palin got her start in politics, moving up from City Council to mayor before winning election as Alaska’s governor in 2006. Johnston, 20, is the father of Palin’s grandson, Tripp, and the recently off-again flame to her daughter Bristol.

Jones said Johnston is serious about a run, either for mayor or City Council.

‘Let me put it to you like this: If you live in a town and things are happening in that town, and you’re displeased with it, what do you do? You try to change those things,’ Jones said.

He declined to give specifics on what Johnston wants to change but insisted the run is real. ‘This is not a spoof. This is not a joke,’ Jones said.

According to the Wasilla city clerk, the next mayoral election is in 2011. The candidate filing period for council elections this October closed July 30. Johnston isn’t listed among those candidates.

Mean while Hollywood Levi just finished appearing at the Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles, so the Alaskan Mayoral hopeful is still catching some California sun rays, take a look as Levi poses with some fans.
