Bay St. Louis Mayor Eddie Favre will not seek re-election to a sixth term, the mayor has told the Sun Herald.
Favre, who took office in 1989, said he reached his decision after "a lot of thinking, a lot of praying, and a lot of soul-searching. This last term has really taken its toll."
The deadline to file for the election is Friday. So far, four candidates have qualified to run for the office.
