Grand Forks city council member Mike McNamara says he will not run for another term in June.

The radio talk show host and one-time candidate for mayor says he will not seek a second term as a city councilman.

Mike McNamara was elected to the city council in 2006...while he was deployed in Iraq. He represents Ward 2 in the north-central part of city.

He says serving on the council requires two to three days a week where he is required to be in meetings. And with a full time job it's proving to be too much.

McNamara says he may run again in the future, but for now wants to spend more with his family, and doing other activities like coaching baseball.
