EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — A 94-year-old Eugene city councilor has announced she will not seek reelection to an unprecedented seventh four-year term.

The Register-Guard reports Betty Taylor will step down when her current term expires in January 2021, allowing a new councilor to represent Ward 2 for the first time since 1996.

Taylor is already the longest-serving city councilor in Eugene’s history.

Taylor made her brief announcement at Monday’s City Council work session. She didn’t explain her decision.
