LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – After serving on the Louisville Metro council for a decade a councilwoman announced her plans to retire.

Tine Ward-Pugh, (D-9) released a statement Friday that read;

"I am announcing today that I will not seek re-election as the Metro Council Representative for the Ninth District. Until then, I will continue to serve you, the Ninth District, and all of Louisville until my term expires in December of 2014. It has been my privilege to serve the best interests of the citizens of this district and Metro Louisville.

We have a great city and I am most proud of the opportunity I've had to increase the transparency and accountability of metro government, sustainability of our resources as well as the emphasis we've placed on valuing and including all of our citizens. My best wishes to all of you as I focus on exploring what the next chapter of my life will bring and where I can continue to make a meaningful contribution to our community and our world."
