SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - One of the longest-serving elected officials in Sioux Falls history says he will not seek a fourth term on the City Council due to health problems.

The Argus Leader reports (http://argusne.ws/1O6FmmY ) that Kermit Staggers has suffered in recent months from shingles, a broken leg and a heart condition that caused him to collapse while teaching a class at the University of Sioux Falls.

The 68-year-old Staggers was first elected to the council in 2002. He served until 2010, made an unsuccessful bid for mayor and won back his council seat in 2012.
