Letter: Snope will not seek re-election

Dear residents of Golden Valley, family, friends and supporters,
After much consideration and deliberation, I have decided not to seek another term to the office of Golden Valley City Council. I will not be running in the 2017 election for that office.
At this point in my life, I have realized how important to me it is to devote and reclaim more time to my family while I juggle a very demanding career.
I have enjoyed my service to the residents of Golden Valley over the last four years and am truly humbled to be given the opportunity to serve. Thank you to all who have supported and worked with me to help make the city of Golden Valley a better place to live.
I have really enjoyed working with the other Golden Valley council members, the mayor and especially the dedicated leadership of the city manager and staff; the city would not be as great as it is without their dedicated service. I know when I leave office in January, I will be leaving the city in good hands.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity and support to serve,

Andy Snope
Golden Valley
