Gainesville Councilwoman Ruth Bruner will not be running for re-election when her seat is on the ballot in November.

“I’ve enjoyed it very much, but I think it’s time for me to move aside and let somebody else come on,” she said at Tuesday’s City Council meeting. “It’s going to be exciting to see what all goes on in Gainesville.”

Bruner was first elected in 2003 and was mayor from 2010 to 2011. Her term expires in December. She represents part of west Gainesville.
