Veteran Board of Finance member Ron Messier said Tuesday he asked the mayor not to reappoint him to the powerful nine-member panel.
Messier, who has served for a decade, said he is bogged down at work and anxious to spend his spare time with his family.
Messier said he toyed with seeking another term, but realized it would be better to let someone new take his seat.
Mayor Art Ward could nominate a replacement for Messier within weeks.
