Madison Mayor Paul Soglin Won`t Seek Re-Election

Longtime Madison Mayor Paul Soglin announced Tuesday he will not seek re-election to the office.

Soglin, who has served as mayor in three stints over the past five decades, said he is leaving the city "different" and "stronger" than when he first took office more than 40 years ago.

"Making a city run well is something I do well," he said in a prepared statement.

Soglin served as mayor from 1973-1979, again from 1989-1997, and from 2011 to the present.


Ken Notes: Paul has done a good job for many development projects and has limited the gridlock some committees were able to establish in the past. When looking for a new Mayor we need to keep a positive development and growth message front and center. Thanks Paul for your leadership...
