City Councilor Blake Caravati announced on Monday that he would not be a candidate for the democratic nomination in the May 2006 city council elections.
Caravati, a former mayor and current city councilor urged the city of Charlottesville to keep its progressive political outlook, during a press conference outside of City Hall on Monday.
Although he is taking a break from public office for now, he has assured everyone that he does plan to stay very active within the community.
"It has been my personal duty since I was a sophomore in high school to be involved in public service. That I will do that in the near future again. [For now] I will focus my efforts in other manners and other ways but I can tell you that I will not be denied that public service," said Caravati.
Mr. Caravati also added that one day in the future, he may run for public office once again.
