Carona not running for mayor
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.
