Carona not run­ning for mayor

Austin American-Statesman - - LOCALBRIEFING -

GOP state Sen. John Carona says he will seek a sixth term and not run for mayor of Dal­las in 2011.

Carona said he has al­ways had an in­ter­est in re­turn­ing to Dal­las and “serv­ing the city,” but for now his fo­cus is the Leg­is­la­ture.

Carona had served in the Leg­is­la­ture since be­ing elected to the Texas House in 1990. He was named to lead the Busi­ness and Com­merce Com­mit­tee this week.

Dal­las Mayor Tom Lep­pert has not said whether he will seek a sec­ond term or higher of­fice.
