Conway Mayor Says He Won't Seek 6th Term In Office
Conway Mayor Tab Townsell says he won't be seeking a sixth term in office.
Townsell was re-elected in 2012 and has three years left in his term. But he tells the Log Cabin Democrat that he's ready for "anything that might present itself" and that he may not finish his current term.
Townsell, who is 51, says he expects to keep working into his 60s and that he's open to new job prospects - either in the public or private sector. He says he doesn't know yet what his next step will be but says he's not ruling out a run for the U.S. House seat representing central Arkansas.
Townsell has served as Conway's mayor for 15 years.
