    (08-23) 18:54 PDT Anchorage, Alaska (AP) --

    Levi Johnston, the father of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's grandson, has filed papers to run for office in his hometown of Wasilla, Alaska, next year.

    Johnston filed his letter of intent Friday with the Alaska Public Offices Commission, a first step needed to begin campaigning.

    The letter doesn't specify an office though Johnston's manager, Tank Jones, has said Johnston's interested in a run for mayor or City Council. He did not immediately return a message Monday.

    Wasilla is where Palin got her political start, first as a council member and then as mayor.

    Earlier this month, Jones confirmed that Johnston planned to run for office as part of a reality TV show.

    Johnston and Palin's daughter Bristol were thrust into the national spotlight in 2008, when Palin was making her vice presidential run and the two were unwed expectant teens.

    Johnston, 20, has had a prickly relationship with the Palin family since the birth of son Tripp and has sought to capitalize on his notoriety, posing for Playgirl and hitting the Hollywood circuit. He and Bristol Palin recently broke off a short-lived engagement.
