COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Former state representative Jed Harris announced Thursday he will not be running for Columbus mayor in 2018.

Harris said he made the decision after many folks in the community asked him to consider a run.

“At this point in my life, I have to decide for personal reasons not to be a candidate in 2018. I will continue to be just as involved in this community, working shoulder to shoulder with other citizens to help advance our community,” said Jed Harris.

Harris is a longtime political operative and says he will spend the next years focusing on retirement.
