One of the longest serving members of the Washtenaw County Board of commissioners will not seek re-election in 2014.

According to the Ann Arbor Chronicle, Rolland Sizemore Jr. says he made the decision not to run after winning re-election in the 2012 elections. 

Rolland Sizemore Jr., one of the longest-serving current members of the Washtenaw County board of commissioners, has announced that he’s not running for re-election in 2014. The Ypsilanti Township Democrat was elected to his first two-year term in November 2000 to represent District 5, for a term starting in January of 2001. The district covers southeast Washtenaw, including Augusta Township and much of Ypsilanti Township.

The only person who has  indicated any interest in the District 5 seat is Wilma Gold-Jones, a Democrat from Ypsilanti Township.
