Three In, One Out

Three incumbent city council members will run for re-election. One will not.

Wendy Priest, whose district runs from downtown to Naval Avenue, said she wants to focus more on her family. Priest gave birth to her daughter in August of 2005. She told the council Wednesday night during a brief meeting prior to the regular council meeting.

The other three council members eligible for re-election are all planning to run. Council President Will Maupin, former Council President Cecil McConnell and Dianne Robinson all say there’s more work they’d like to see through.

Robinson and Priest are both in their first terms. Maupin was appointed to the council in 2001 and elected later that year. McConnell is in his third term.
