Lynch Won’t Run for Reelection

Kevin Lynch announced last night that he will not seek reelection, Seth Rosen writes in today’s Progress. At last night’s annual Charlottesville Democratic Pasta Supper, Lynch said that two consecutive terms had been enough, but that he may run for Council again in four or six years after he can “recharge [his] battery and reconnect with people.”

Given Mayor David Brown’s inevitable announcement that he’s running for a second term, and Kendra Hamilton’s retirement at the end of her first term, this means that two seats are opening up. Suddenly every candidate has a 100% better shot at getting nominated at the June 2nd Democratic convention.
