Fort Worth City Councilman for District 2 Sal Espino announced Monday he will not run for re-election next year.

In a Facebook post, Espino said: “For this upcoming election cycle in May 2017, I was going to wait until the first of the year to make a final decision. However, after much deep reflection and thought during Thanksgiving Week, the decision became even clearer to me. Therefore, rather than wait, I am announcing today that I will NOT seek a seventh term to the Fort Worth City Council District 2 seat.”

Later in the post, he said: “Serving on the Fort Worth City Council has been a great honor and privilege. It is one of the highest honors of my life.”

Espino was elected to the District 2 council seat in 2005.

In a later Facebook post, Espino gave his support in the upcoming election to North Side Neighborhood Association President Carlos Flores for the District 2 seat. Flores announced his intention to run on his Facebook page.

Others eyeing the seat include Steve Thornton, who came close to defeating Espino in 2015. Also announcing her intent to run is Jennifer Trevino, a vice president at the University of North Texas Health Science Center and is the District 2 Appointee to the City Plan Commission.

Elections are in May 2017.
