Shepherd Mayor Pat Lunsford has announced she will not be seeking re-election next year. According to the Cleveland Advocate, one of our Houston Community Newspaper partners, Lunsford said her decision was based on growing animosity between several city councilmen.

Lunsford told the newspaper she believes the council will respond better under a new mayor.
