The mayor of Lewes says he won't seek re-election after leading the city for a decade.
Lewes Mayor James L. Ford III says he will not be a candidate in the local election in May.
Ford says he's stepping down because of business and family reasons. According to his biography on the city's website, Ford has been a Lewes resident since 1976 and owns a building contracting business that specializes in historic restoration.
Ford became the city's mayor in 2004.
