BATON ROUGE - District 11 Metro Councilwoman Alison Gary announced today that she will not run for re-election. Gary sent a letter to Metro Councilmembers with her decision:

"Dear Councilmembers,

Now that campaign season is gearing up, I wanted to let you know that I have decided not to run for a second term.

It was an extremely difficult decision, but I know that once baby girl Gary gets here, my priorities are going to shift.

I had been on the fence about this for a while, but more than anything I want to give my family as much attention as possible.

I will certainly miss serving on Council and I plan to enjoy and put a lot of work into these next six months.

I may run again in the future, but this year, I'm happy to watch y'all from the sidelines!


District 11 encompasses neighborhoods including Old Goodwood, Tara, Westminster, Jefferson Terrace, and Bocage/Jefferson Place.

Republican Ryan Heck announced yesterday that he is running for the District 11 seat.
