No other details were given. the election is this October 22nd.
  The following is an excerpt from McKay’s online news update:
…...I wanted you to be among the first to know that I have decided not to run for mayor in the upcoming election. I will save you a long dissertation as to why I have come to this decision. Suffice to say I have been your mayor for nearly 8 years and am very pleased with the significant accomplishments that my Councils have made.  Midland is definitely a better place than when I first took office.
     Midland is now positioned for a phenomenal future. We will need intelligent and progressive leadership at Town hall to keep us on track. Your chance to truly forge your future comes up this October. Please listen to the candidates and vote wisely – or even better, be the candidate.  And thank you for the privilege of having me as your mayor…….
