Jacksonville's mayor is not running for a third term. Jan Bean Slagle says family reasons are preventing her from running again.
Slagle, a former television news anchor, was first elected mayor in 2003. In 2005 she overwhelmingly won re-election.
Slagle tells WITN 7 News that being mayor has been the best job she's ever had.
Filing for municipal elections in North Carolina begins today at noon.
