NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - The president and longest-serving current member of the Adams County Board of Supervisors says he will not be seeking re-election in 2015.

Darryl Grennell said Wednesday his decision was prompted by the upcoming qualifying period for re-election, which starts Jan. 1 and ends Feb. 27.

Grennell tells The Natchez Democrat (https://bit.ly/1uWBj3D ) the decision not to run was not prompted by any one thing, but by a desire to pursue new things.

Elected in 1997 and taking office in 1998, Grennell served 12 of those years - some non-consecutively - as board president, a position he currently holds. The members of the board select the president from among their ranks.

Grennell said he plans to stay in the community after his term ends Dec. 31, 2015.
