Wayne Maiorano not running for Raleigh City Council reelection

Welp, this is weird.

The News and Observer is reporting that Wayne Maiorano won't seek reelection to Raleigh City Council's District A seat, which he has occupied for only one term after defeating incumbent Randy Stagner by 250 votes in 2013. 

Per the N&O:

"After considerable prayer and discussion with my family and close friends, I have decided to forgo my reelection campaign in order to devote more time to my family," a Maiorano statement reads. 

Stagner, who has intimated that he may run for the District A seat, said he is still undecided. 

"A lot of it will be predicated on who’s looking to run in District A,"  Stagner told the INDY Wednesday afternoon.

"If there is a good individual truly interested in the interests of my friends and neighbors in North Raleigh, I would be more than happy to step aside. If a good candidate cannot be found then I will probably file."

Stagner added that he has not decided whether he will run at large.

This is quite the change of tune for Maiorano from two months ago.
