Arcadia Mayor Mickey Segal announced Tuesday that he will not seek re-election, leaving three open seats will be up for grabs in the City Council race in April, according to the Pasadena Star-News.
Segal said his decision not to run was based on his growing accounting and business management firm, Century City-based Nigro Karlin Segal Feldstein and Bolno, LLP.
“As a managing partner, it has put a substantial amount of more burden on me to manage this practice,” said Segal, according to the Star-News. “As a result of that, I was very concerned that I couldn’t spend the time necessary to properly service my job as a city councilman.”
The mail-in ballot election will be held April 8.
