McCrory will not seek re-election as mayor

Posted on 11 Dec 2008 by Justin Ruckman

Watch the video he released today, making his announcement.

However, he is still considering future political activity:

Although I will not seek re-election as mayor, this will hopefully not be my last position in an elected office. I will explore and strongly consider running for other elected office at either the state or federal level. I still have the desire to serve and believe there is a calling for me in public service.”

    Now that McCrory has bowed out, it looks like the next mayoral race could be a battle between Charlotte city council members John Lassiter and Anthony Foxx.
