Thanks for your service, Councilman Leal.
TUCSON -- Long-time City Councilman Steve Leal will not run for re-election in 2009. When Steve steps off the council next year, he will have served 20 years.
Steve has helped me and my neighborhood in many ways over the years, and I wish him the best.
As my family and I live in south downtown in Ward 5, I will closely watch the contest for the Leal's seat, which should be an interesting local race for 2009.
