Little Rock Mayor Jim Dailey today announced that he will not run for re-election this year.

“It’s time for me to move to the next phase in my life,” Dailey said in a press release. “I look forward to continuing to contribute to and be involved in the community that I believe will be the next great American city. When I considered what the right time would be to step aside, I wanted to be sure that the city would have strong candidates for mayor to lead into the future. After talking with people who intend to run, I can say that the people of Little Rock will have fine choices to make in the next election.”

Dailey was elected in 1995 as the first popularly-elected mayor of Little Rock in more than 38 years.

Among the people known to be considering a campaign to succeed Dailey this year are city directors Dean Kumpuris, Barbara Graves and Stacy Hurst, as well as attorney Mark Stodola.

Anybody else we need to add to that list?
