Lexington-Fayette Urban County Council vice Mayor Linda Gorton announced on Thursday that she will not run for re-election in 2014.

This was her 16th year and will become the longest-serving Councilmember since the merger of the city and county.
She said in a press conference, “I love my job and I love this city. It has been one of the greatest honors of my life to be elected by the people of Lexington. Gorton says that she is has a new grandchild and wants to spend more time with her husband so she feels its time to retire.

Gorton has championed some of the most important legislative initiatives of recent years, including sweeping environmental reforms like clean indoor air and water quality ordinances, a land preservation program and the fairness ordinance, to name just a few.
