Fayetteville mayor will not seek re-election

Posted: Updated:
FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. -

Fayetteville Mayor Tony Chavonne announced Tuesday that he will not seek re-election for a fifth term.

In a statement released Tuesday night, Chavonne wrote, "After prayerful consideration, I have decided to not seek re-election for a fifth term as mayor this fall.

"I will continue to focus my attention on implementing the strategic goals of the City and working with the City Council and others to address our challenges and take advantage of the many opportunities we enjoy."

Chavonne, 58, goes on to explain that the city "will face the first open seat for mayor in almost 25 years." However he ensures "there is no shortage of great leaders in our city."

The Fayetteville Observer reports that 50-year-old Republican Nat Robertson said this week that he will likely run for mayor. He unsuccessfully ran for mayor in 2011.

Chavonne was elected mayor of Fayetteville in 2005. Fayetteville has seen a population growth of 50,000 residents since Chavonne took office.
