Lethbridge City Councillor Jeffrey Coffman announced today that he will not be seeking re-election this October. Coffman said when he was re-elected in 2011 he would commit himself to a three-term limit because he says 10 years should be enough time to accomplish the policy agenda that inspired him to run in the first place. He first served on council from 1995 to 1998, before being re-elected in 2011. He says he believes that he achieved 90 per cent of his goal.
Coffman says his biggest accomplishment was achieving good governance.
Coffman’s last day at City Hall will be Oct. 31. He says once he leaves public office he will resume teaching at the U of L in the winter semester and spend more time with his family.
