Paducah City Commissioner Carol Gault not to seek re-election
Paducah City Commissioner Carol Gault says she will not be seeking re-election.
Gault was elected to the Paducah City Board of Commissioners in the fall of 2008 and is currently serving her fourth term.
She says she will hold the office until December 2016 when her current term expires.
Gault said, "It has been and continues to be a pleasure to work with such a talented, committed group of individuals and a privilege to serve the citizens of Paducah. Even so, I strongly believe in term limits. A vibrant and growing community is dependent upon an ongoing stream of new ideas and differing viewpoints within its leadership. I’m hopeful my announcement will serve as a catalyst for one of our community’s young leaders to step forward and begin their own journey of service."
Gault says she will continue to serve on the Tennessee Tombigbee waterway development board.
