Fells won't seek re-election on Sebring council

SEBRING - City Councilman Andrew Fells on Wednesday joined Mayor George Hensley and Councilman John Clark in not seeking re-election.

Fells said in a letter to City Administrator Scott Noethlich that while serving on the council has "been one of the greatest opportunities given me" he has come to the conclusion "that at this current time in my life, I need to focus on family and career."

He said his job in helping to run Silver Lake in Avon Park and raising Cullen, the son of he and his wife, Julie, require a lot of his time.

He praised the current city council and mayor for their dedication in running the city, although they may disagree on some issues.
