Mayor Hurley will not seek re-election


WATERLOO (KWWL) - Waterloo Mayor Tim Hurley announced Monday that he would not seek re-election to a fourth term in office in the November 2009 elections.

"One of the greatest things in my life has been the privilege of serving the citizens of Waterloo", said Hurley "I plan to approach the remaining seven months on the job the same way as I have for the past five and a half years - with energy, focus, dedication and hard work."

Hurley replaced Mayor John Rooff in January 2004 after defeating Doug Miller in the city's first run-off election in 2003. He was re-elected in 2005 and 2007. Prior to being mayor, Hurley was the Ward 1 council person for two years.
