He's served as the Mayor of South Charleston for more than 30 years, but Richie Robb plans to call it quits next summer!
Last night, Robb announced he will not seek another term as the city's leader. He says he wants to focus more on his legal practice, but he's not ruling out a run for another office. Robb's term is up in June.
Last year, Robb switched his party affiliation to democrat.
The candidates are already lining up to run for the open office in 2007.
