Richardson Council Member Scott Dunn announced tonight he will not seek re-election in May.
“Eight years is enough for me,” Dunn said at the Jan. 7 City Council meeting.
Dunn, who joined council in 2011 and was re-elected in 2015, is the representative for Place 3, or the southwest portion of Richardson. He also serves on the Methodist Richardson Medical Center Foundation board and is course chairman of Richardson High School’s 5K Excellence in Education Foundation Committee.
While Dunn is retiring from council, he said he intends to seek out other opportunities for public service.
The filing period for candidates planning to run for Richardson City Council opens Jan. 16 and closes Feb. 15. Applications are now available for pickup at the city secretary’s office in City Hall.
