Williams Lake city councillor Danica Hughes will not be running for office in the 2014 municipal election.
“I want to let all of council know that I do not intend to run again for the election next year,” Hughes said during council’s roundtable discussion at the end of Tuesday’s regular council meeting.
“I am looking forward to fulfilling the rest of this term with my absolute best I can do for the community.”
She also said she wanted to thank the community for electing her.
“I’m working on the city’s 85th birthday and that’s probably where my focus is right now,” Hughes said.
Coun. Laurie Walters told Hughes she was surprised by the announcement.
“You’re a great contributor and I know you’ll work hard between now and that time,” Walters said.
