Farmers Branch Mayor Not Seeking Re-Election

FARMERS BRANCH (AP) – A suburban Dallas mayor whose efforts to ban illegal immigrants from renting housing drew international attention is not seeking another term.

Farmers Branch Mayor Tim O’Hare says he wants to devote more time to his family and to his law practice. His wife, Christen, is pregnant with their first child, due this month.

The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that the city this week filed an appeal to reverse a lower ruling that barred implementation of an ordinance that would require all renters in Farmers Branch to be in the U.S. legally.

O’Hare on Thursday announced he will not seek re-election. He was elected in 2008.
