District 18 Metro Councilwoman Kristine LaLonde isn’t seeking re-election.
LaLonde, elected two years ago in a special election to replace outgoing councilman Keith Durbin, announced her decision to not run again come August in an email to constituents, writing that she would like to spend more time with her family.
“My time on the council has been one of the greatest opportunities of my life,” LaLonde wrote. “I have been honored to serve a neighborhood and city that I love and to act as your representative to the legislative body of our community. I am continually amazed by the energy, dedication, and insight of my constituents.”
LaLonde represents neighborhoods near Vanderbilt and Belmont universities.
