Fort Lauderdale City Commissioner Carlton Moore who narrowly lost a County Commission race to John Rodstrom this week won't run for re-election for his city seat in March.
"I have no desires -- none,'' to run for the seat, Moore said before abruptly hanging up.
Earlier this year Moore submitted his resignation effective Nov. 4 so he could run for the county seat. He has served on the City Commission for about 20 years with a brief break to run for the County Commission in 2000.
Moore was viewed as an advocate for blighted neighborhoods in the northwest quadrant of the city.
